    Default Can anyone identify these Soviet medals?

    A relative has asked me to sell his small collection of Soviet medals, he bought them many years ago in Poland and I have to research them before I can sell them. they have serial numbers on the backs.
    I know one of them is the Order of Lenin type 6 variation 1 and is in its original case but the others have me stumped. any information would earn my eternal gratitude!

    Hi,

    First picture, first row: Order of the Red Banner
    Second row: Order of Lenin, Order of the Red Banner of Labor, Order of the October Revolution, Order of the Badge of Honor

    I'd love to see their reverses!

    Yeah, Third Reich memorabilia and militaria is highly collectable. To many, anything with a swastika on it is valuable.

    No. October revolution will beat in prise any EK even round 3 ones . I don't even wanna start on Red Banner (what is the number of it BTW?). But I'll tell that Order of Lenin is made of gold 23K and platinum and weight of gold only is around 28 grams.

    But first to tell anything for sure I need to see proper picture of mentioned awards in day light, no flash as there are many fakes

    The cheapest award in there is the Order of Honor. Flatback Order of the Red Banner of Labor can hit up to $200 if not more

    These were bought in Poland 8 days after the Berlin wall came down, my brother in law was doing some business over there and bought loads of Items back with him, Icons, medals...even hand woven cloths, he was going over about three times a week and coming back loaded, he gave me an old leather flying helmet with the goggles and it had a bottle with it.." property of the Luftwaffe" written on the ceramic top.
    i will take some daylight pics tomorrow but am quite happy that they are genuine.

    Quite a nice little haul!

    Those x2 blue badges are interesting. They look to have Jewish significance?
