Order of the Patriotic War 1st cl., Type 3, #536952, 1985 issue in gilded silver. The serial number is very low for the Type 3 "Jubilee" issue. In superb condition, nearly impossible to upgrade.
Order of the Patriotic War, 2nd cl., Type 1, Var. 3, #19613, awarded in June 1943 to a military topographer of the Southwestern Front for his contribution in building fortified defense lines. A highly unusual award recommendation! The order has not been re-converted and includes complete original suspension device. In fine overall condition, an attractive piece despite some enamel damage and repair. Comes with archival research.
