Gents,

  There are now clearly some ongoing shenanigans with this set.  Although ostensibly "sold" a few days ago for $788.79, it has now reappeared on the well-known auction site with a BIN price of $1,900.00 and a "Best Offer" option.  I'd steer clear of this seller.

Regards,

Gents,

  The BIN price dropped to $1,800.00 on January 26th.  I still advise caution.

Gents,

  A Category 1 Full Cavalier set that was up for auction last November in the former Soyuz.  The recipient was a sergeant and squad leader in a rifle regiment assigned to a rifle division when he was nominated for the Hero of the Soviet Union title.  The rifle corps commander subsequently recommended a downgrade to OGI which was then endorsed further up his chain of command.  He was also awarded an ORS and two BMs during the war.  It is unknown what the set sold for.

  Listed on the well-known auction site two days ago.  The BIN price is set at $9,999.99.  The recipient was erroneously awarded two OGIIIs during the war only to have the second award amended to this OGI in 1969 when he officially attained Full Cavalier status.  He was a corporal serving as a machine gunner in a rifle regiment assigned to a rifle division when recommended for his final OG.  He was also awarded an ORS and two BMs during the war.

  Just listed on the well-known NYC-area dealer's web site.  Price:  $8,500.00.  Recipient earned his OGI during the Battle of Berlin.  He was a Guards junior sergeant serving as a 120mm mortar crew member in a Guards rifle regiment (subordinated to 8th Guards Army) when recommended for it.  He would subsequently march in the June 24, 1945, Victory Parade on Red Square.

Gents,

  An interesting twist has come to light.  Meet OGI serial number 1153's fraternal twin.  Each is original in every respect.  This "twin" was accompanied by its associated OGII and OGIII.  The set was on the market within the past year.  It could be serial number 1153 seen below was issued as an official duplicate to replace the above OGI which is currently offered for sale.

Gents,

  This OGII to a Full Cavalier recently sold in the former Soyuz for $540.00.  The recipient was a Guards Sergeant serving as a 76mm gunner in a Guards rifle regiment when recommended for his OGI.  As he was KIA before his OGI could be presented, in accordance with awards policy in force at the time,  it was not presented to his next of kin.  He was also awarded an ORS and BM during the war.

Gents,

  Currently available on the well-known auction site for a buy-it-now price of $3,500.00.  The orders booklet and OGII only first surfaced at auction in Ukraine a couple of years back.  Since then, the "OGIII" has now suddenly appeared.  While I'm confident in the OGII's and orders booklet's authenticity, I can't say the same for the OGIII based on the images below.  While the OGIII's "serial number" matches that awarded to the Full Cavalier in question, the likelihood of the original OGIII being found and then reunited with the OGII and orders booklet seems remote at best.  The seller is in Latvia and has a solid eBay reputation.

  In any event, this an interesting offering as the Full Cavalier in question initially served in an airborne unit and later transitioned to duties as an aerial gunner/radio operator in an IL-2 Shturmovik ground attack aircraft.  His OGIII recommendation included credit for shooting down a German aircraft.  His IL-2 pilot would go on to earn the HSU title.
