I have always wanted one of these sets back in the 90s.... I should have got one when they could be had for 3k... but it was too expensive then... Dohh!

Senior Chief,

This is what $3,500.00 would have gotten you on January 9th, 1998. This is one heck of a primo, in-your-face combat Full Cavalier group. Suffice it to say Full Cavaliers who came from the ranks of Guards airborne units are far and few between.

"Group of 4, to Guards Sergeant Major Grigory Shekera, reconnaissance scout in 6th Independent Guards Airborne Reconnaissance Company (2nd Guards Airborne Division), recipient of all three classes of the Order of Glory: 1. Order of Glory, 1st cl., #407, perfect condition, issued on 03/24/1945 for courageous conduct during a reconnaissance raid on Hungarian territory. He led a group of 4 scouts that ambushed and dispersed a group of 60 enemy soldiers. Senior Sergeant Shekera killed six of them at point-blank range and captured a prisoner for interrogation that was later delivered to the headquarters and gave valuable information. 2. Order of Glory, 2nd cl., #1986, faded gilt in the center, perfect otherwise, issued on 07/18/1944. The award was given for 06/24/1944 fight on the enemy territory, when his decisive actions saved the reconnaissance group surrounded by the enemy. 3. Order of the Red Star, #683246, issued on 08/08/1944. The award was given for Grigory Shekera's daring action in reconnaissance raids.

On the way back he destroyed a Nazi machine-gun emplacement with hand grenades and captured a prisoner for interrogation. Included is also unresearched Order of Glory, 3rd cl., #9715 (!) to the same recipient (listed in the award record card). Missing: Order of the Patriotic War, 1st cl., WW 2; Order of the Red Banner.
