    Order of Lenin
    $9,750.00 Order of Lenin, Type 4, Var. 1 ("Mondvor" screw back), #8612, with a document, awarded in August 1941 - extremely early during the Patriotic War - to an Air Force sergeant, an aerial gunner / radio operator of a long-range IL-4 bomber (aka DB- 3f). He received the order for shooting down four (4) Messerschmitt Bf 109 fighters during his six missions flown in the first few weeks of the war. In October 1943, he was shot down by a German fighter and went missing in action. Interestingly, although a USSR Ministry of Defense letter to his family claimed that nothing else was known about his fate in as late as 1952, there is some evidence that he survived the war and was still on active duty - albeit in a different aviation unit - in mid-1945. In any case, the Order of Lenin remained his only decoration of the war. The order is in good to fine overall condition, showing wartime enamel damage but never converted to suspension; the 1942 order booklet is in very good to excellent condition. Archival research is included. A truly extraordinary "complete Order of Lenin group" to an NCO.

    $2,350.00 Order of Lenin, Type 5, Var. 2 (without a "dimple"), #67510, circa 1948. A Type IV, Var. 1, Sub-Variation 2 according to the Durov classification, this particular piece is especially interesting and scarce: it belongs to the second, much smaller series of the "No Dimple" version. In excellent condition.

    $1,900.00 Order of Lenin, Type 6, Var. 2, #406263, with a document (order booklet), awarded in April 1971 to a Hero of Socialist Labor (the order was issued with a Gold "Hammer and Sickle" Medal.) During WW2, the recipient fought as commander of a small partisan unit and later, Red Army infantry squad leader. In the immediate post-war years, he became an industrial manager and rose to be the director of a large Sulphur mining and processing factory in the Soviet Turkmenistan. Both the order and document are in near mint condition.

    $45.00 "Order of Lenin. Order of Stalin (Project)", Valeriy Durov. C. 2005, Moscow. Large format Russian language hard cover, 143 pp, fine quality. Color detail photographs, front and back, of all known variations, as well as detailed history of the award. Outstanding reference guide to the highest Soviet decoration.
