    Heroes of the Soviet Union
    $7,950.00 Gold Star Medal of a Hero of the Soviet Union, #2073, awarded in January 1944 to a 19 year old mechanic /driver of a T-34 Tank, 1st Guards Tank Army, 1st Ukrainian Front. On 28 December 1943, his tank was the first to break into the town of Kazatin in Ukraine and went on a rampage destroying 4 enemy tanks, 5 Ferdinand heavy tank destroyers, 250 motor vehicles, and 150 German soldiers - all in just one day. The achievements of the single tank crew were so staggering that the Title of Hero of the Soviet Union was bestowed upon the tank commander and driver in an incredibly short time, within ten days from the initial recommendation. The Hero Star is in fine to very fine condition, an attractive piece showing wear and character.

    $13,700.00 Documented Group of Two Awards to a Hero of the Soviet Union, an Infantry company commander of the 1st Belorussian Front. The group includes his Gold Star Medal awarded in February 1944, Order of Lenin issued with it (a very uncommon version with hand-engraved serial number), and the Order Booklet. He was awarded with the Title of Hero for leading an assault that captured 10 lines of German trenches on the first day of the Soviet Vistula-Oder offensive in January 1945. The recipient had earned a civilian decoration, an Order of Badge of Honor, prior to the Great Patriotic War; enlisted in the Red Army as private on the first day of the war; and ended the war with the rank of lieutenant and four combat wounds. This is truly a quintessential WW2 Soviet Hero group!
