    Default Order of the Great Patriotic War, 1st class, #283217

    Also got this in today. To my understanding this was awarded in 1946 and is a Type 2, Variant 3 according to Mondvor. Screw plate is original but wasn't issued with the order; most likely from an Order of the Red Star according to Auke.

    Got a steal with this order too - only paid 70 euros . Research underway.

    The citation is signed by the commander of 62nd Rifle Division Guards Colonel LEVIN (1904 - 1972).
    He was later (June 1945) awarded HSU for the offensive operation at the end of January 1945.
    Here is LEVIN's photograph as a honorary citizen of the town Shakhti (coal mining town).
    He was granted this honorary status in 1967 because he commanded 258 Rifle Division, which liberated the town on 11/Feb/1943.

    Magnificent work Igor, thank you again!

    Very interesting, especially since I'm interested in HSU's and my life goal is to own a Gold Star .
