    I’m not a expert on these but I’d imagine it’s just the fact that it’s eBay, I collect helmets and I always see ND ones on there going for way more then what their worth so I’d imagine this medal is in the same predicament.

    It's a Platinapribor made star and there are sellers who ask a lot more for stars made by this factory. Completely unnecessary of course since the askingprice/saleprice is roughly double of what the price should be for an unresesarched star by Platinapribor. Plus, it was sold on Ebay, thé place for idiots to lose money fast.

    Another possibility...the buyer knew that this specific star belonged to a high ranking officer, or full Cavalier of the Order of Glory or perhaps a HSU and thus bid more than what such a star would bring otherwise.
    Myself I also keep track of such facts when possible so I am pretty sure more collectors do this.

    agreed, could be any number of reasons....or none at all.....it is in a stretch of late war combat awards.
    how shall we enliven the forum?

    I agree, it's been quite dead here recently. Will add a new grouping here to start bringing the Soviet part of the forum back to live again...hopefully

    Good comments by all.

    Marcels comment sticks out to me and I can't help but wonder how many collectors out there have large data bases that puts the rest of us (well...me anyways) at a disadvantage.
    My 'Echoes of War' by Schmitt is full of stickies with added information I've pulled from forums, but I'm sure it's just a scratch of what some have.

    I myself have also compiled a rather large database and I'm sure many collectors do. I'm reminded of a late-war Red Banner that was on eBay recently. There's was no research with it, but I happened to have the serial number on file. The citation was phenomenal. It sold for more than $400 I believe, far above market value for a run-of-the-mill late-war Red Banner, so it's likely that at least several bidders possessed the same information.
