    This is fantastic!
    Is the list of the cavaliers award numbers all online someplace as you show one page?

    That is a fine pick up Marcel.
    I haven't added a OGII to my collection yet. One of these days I'll make the leap.

    @ meyerse: I didn't come across this list online. Would love to see that list in full. I got it with the purchase from the order so I will ask the seller (seller is from Baku, as is the awardee of this OGII). If I get the list I will post it on the forum of course!

    @ Leaftree: I also waited quite long before I picked up my first OGII. It had to be a good one and I am glad it is with this research

    No serial numbers but a very complete well researched listing of all Cavaliers of the Order of Glory by Bruce Emperic: Onward to Berlin!: Red Army Valor in World War II - The Full Cavaliers of the Soviet Order of Glory.

    Nice score Marcel! The OG's are great orders. This one is in really nice condition, lovely item. A brave soldier with 8 awards! Is it known where his other awards are? Next goal: OGI?

    No idea where his other orders are but I hope to find out through the seller. An OGI is way out of my price-range unfortunately haha. It is a dream though since I value this above a Hero of the Soviet Union
