Recommended Posts

Nice score, the Order of Glory especially.  Do you need any help with them?  What's the reverses look like?

Happy to help.  Top row, L-R: common, 1980s cap badge.  Labor medal, silver, early medals had a serial number, most did not.  Bravery medal, silver, many had a serial number (3+ million).

Bottom row: Order of Glory, 3rd class, silver, probable original suspension and ribbon, serial number dates it to early to mid 1945, nice one!  Combat Service medal, silver, probable original suspension, serial number dates this to late '44/early '45, possible Long Service award, 'shovel tongue' variation.  Motherhood medal, 1st class.

Thanks a lot Eric.

Much appreciated.

 

The labor medal doesn't bear any serial numbers, the bravery medal is marked 836625.

Another nice one.  Early 1944 award most likely.  An original suspension and ribbon shouldn't be too hard to find nor very expensive if you're thinking about restoring it.

BTW, in case you didn't know most Soviet awards that have a serial number can be researched by that number which reveals the soldier who won the award and usually the reasons for the award.

Ok, thanks.

The research sounds interesting. I might give it a go.

If you decide to try it contact "Ferdinand" on this forum.  He's a recommended researcher.  He's also a neighbor of yours (Holland) if I recall correctly.

Any news on researching these items? I am especially curious about the OGIII. :)

with the OGIII that was part of a block of 500 OGIII (415,701- 416,200) on the 16.06.1945, and was issued to Captain Yablonsky. L.M.  - Leningradsky Front

This OG III was issued from the mint on the 12.06.1945 as part of a 10,00 OG III block (405,901 - 415,900)

 

hope that is of some help

 

regards
