Full Cavaliers of the Order of Glory - Present Day Market Realities


Recommended Posts

Gents,

  This OGI is currently at auction in the former Soyuz.  The opening bid is set at $8,450.00 with a BIN price of $11,500.00.  

  The recipient was a Guards senior sergeant serving as a T-34 tank gunner in a tank regiment subordinate to 4th Guards Tank Army when recommended for his OGI.  In late April 1945, he participated in the capture of Potsdam followed by the capture of Prague in early May.

  In addition to his three Orders of Glory, he was one of the very few Full Cavaliers to have also been awarded three Bravery Medals (BM).  His first BM was awarded for bravery while serving his sentence in a penal company.

Gents,

  This OGII to a Full Cavalier is currently available on the well-known auction site for a BIN price of $975.00.  A sergeant major assigned to an independent self-propelled artillery battalion subordinate to a rifle division, he was serving as an assistant platoon leader when recommended for his OGI.  He was also awarded a CSM during the war.

Gents,

  This Full Cavalier group is currently at auction in the former Soyuz.  The opening bid is set at $9,645.00.  The recipient was a sergeant serving as a squad leader in an independent sapper battalion subordinate to a rifle division when recommended for his OGI.  His ORB resulted from a front commander-level downgrade to the original recommendation for the Hero of the Soviet Union title.

Gents,

  This Full Cavalier set is currently available with a West European dealer.  The asking price is $11,060.00.  The group includes many of the Full Cavalier's additional orders and medals such as his ORS and CSM as well as various defense and capture medals. 

  It should be noted, however, that the OGII and OGIII are not original to the recipient, but rather OGIIIs whose original serial numbers were eradicated and the serial numbers corresponding to this Full Cavalier's awards substituted in their place.  The OGII in this set is in fact an OGIII that has had its central medallion gilded to represent an OGII.

  The recipient was a Guards sergeant major serving as a reconnaissance scout assigned to an independent Guards reconnaissance company in a Guards rifle division when recommended for his OGI for action in the Battle of Berlin.  It is also interesting to note he received his OGIII for valor while serving his sentence in an independent penal company.  This fact is addressed in my book Onward to Berlin!  Red Army Valor in World War II The Full Cavaliers of the Soviet Order of Glory.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
