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.

Regards,

When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho

    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
