Hello  all - I'm new on this forum (and forums in general to be honest..) and this is my first post so please be gentle with me ! - My first question is, Does anyone know of an online source (English or Russian) where I can find out roughly when a particular order or medal was awarded using it's number ?.. Question 2 - Does anybody know of a reliable online source showing variations of the 'Excellent' breast badges ? (I've tried to get hold of a copy of 'Breast Badges of the Red Army 1941 - 1945' but I've had no luck..) I'd be very grateful if someone can be of help..

Welcome to the forum!

I don't believe there is a catch-all online source for serial numbers and dates awarded.

These web sites can help you:



I highly recommend the book 'Echos of War' by Paul J. Schmitt


as for badges you can use these dealers :
