    $3,700.00 Nakhimov Medal, Var. 1 (with engraved serial number), #1237, with a document, awarded in January 1945 to a Naval Infantry Reconnaissance Scout. Serving as a radio operator with a forward assault group, he showed outstanding bravery in amphibious landings on German-held islands in the Baltics, and in particular during the storming of the Ruhnu Island in the Gulf of Riga. While disembarking from the ship onto a row boat, his boat capsized in strong gale in a subzero temperature. Incredibly, he would not let go of his radio station and ammunition while clinging to the overturned boat in raging sea until he was rescued by the other marines. After reaching the bank, instead of changing his ice-covered clothes or trying to dry up, he immediately deployed the radio station and established radio link with the ships supporting the operation off shore. During the war, this heroic sailor of Soviet Naval Spetsnaz earned two other decorations for similar kind of seaborne assaults, as well as Badge of Excellent Radio Operator. His award commendations (copies of which are included) are among the best we have seen for a naval infantryman. The medal is in very fine to excellent condition.

    $495.00 Medal for Valor, Type 1, Variation 1 (on a wartime Variation 3 rectangular suspension), #26913, circa early 1942 issue. In very fine to excellent condition.

    $380.00 Medal for Valor, Type 1 Var. 3, #95334, awarded on the Red Army Day of 23 February 1943 to Senior NCO of a 120-mm mortar battery in a very distinguished Guards unit of the 1st Shock Army. He distinguished himself in action during the liquidation of the infamous German Demyansk Pocket when he repaired a broken communication line to his battery under extremely heavy enemy fire. In very fine to excellent condition, far better than an average Type 1 Medal for Valor. Comes with archival research.

    $80.00 Medal for Valor, Type 2 Var. 1, #617044, circa late 1943. Note the low, 6-digit serial number. In very fine condition.

Unlike the Combat Service Medal, Valor Medal was never issued simply for length of service. During the 80s, quite a few of them were awarded for service in Afghanistan. In excellent condition and includes original suspension in brass.

    $450.00 Medal for Combat Service, Type 1, Var. 2 (with engraved number), #30084, circa 1942 issue. In excellent condition and includes complete original rectangular suspension from an early Variation 3 medal.
