    Photo ID #379 issued on 19 June 1939 to NKVD Major Anatoliy Sharapov, Deputy Chief of the Menzhinskiy Military School for NKVD Internal Army and Border Guard Troops in Moscow.

    Photo ID #379 issued on 19 June 1939 to NKVD Major Anatoliy Sharapov, Deputy Chief of the Menzhinskiy Military School for NKVD Internal Army and Border Guard Troops in Moscow.

    The document is a 3.5" x 2.5 " hard-covered booklet bound in red leatherette. The front cover has impressed inscription "Moscow Military School for Internal and Border Guard Troops of NKVD named in honor of Menzhinskiy". The inside cover page has photo of the original owner and ink stamp of the school.

    The internal pages show that Sharapov served as the school's deputy chief in charge of the educational department and was appointed to this position on 28 April 1939. There is also some biographical data: he was born in 1899 in the city of Mtsensk in the Oryol Region of Russia and was promoted to NKVD Major on 27 July 1937 (note that a major was a pretty high rank in the NKVD, roughly an equivalent of Colonel in the regular military.)

    The ID is in outstanding, excellent condition. The cover shows almost no wear. The binding is perfectly tight. The internal pages are perfectly clean and crisp, with only mild age toning. This highly uncommon document is from the period when the ranks of the NKVD high command were decimated by purges.
