    COOL! I'd love to add an ORS or other soviet award attributed to a sniper to my collection.

    Do you have any other awards attributed to snipers, Bill?

    These are really cool. I don't know anything about them but if I could get one soviet item it would be an ORS. Great collection Bill! Thanks for showing.

    Thank you; I have a few more you gentlemen may find interesting. I certainly do. It is like holding a part of someone's life in your hand, the blood, sweat, and tears. . .
