    Default My first Order of the Patriotic War

    Gentlemen,

    I was a happy man when arriving from work today, as my Order of the Patriotic War Second class had arrived.

    It is numbered 369413, which is means it was issued approximately in mid 1944/start of 1945, according to a fellow member of the Soviet Militay Awards forum.


    Regards,

    Gus

    Thumbs up Re: My first Order of the Patriotic War

    Hi Gus


    Congratulations, IMO next to the Red Star this is the most appealing Soviet award of all time. I got eight of them all 1985 issues...

    Nick,

    Thanks for your comment.

    I agree . They are both beautiful awards, but I still prefer the Red Star, it is a much more "humble" award, while this one is too "capitalist" (sickle and hammer made of gold) for my liking, considering the historical context.

    Regards,


    Gus

    Pierre,

    Thanks for the comment.

    I got it from Ebay, the price was 89 euros. I still cannot believe the auction ended with such a relatively low price considering the condition of the award.

    The photos of the auction were not very good, and that might have prevented some bidders to take the plunge, but the order was clearly original.



    Regards,


    Gus
