    Large certificate for Order of the Red Banner of RSFSR, issued on 4 November 1924 to Commander of the 172nd Rifle Regiment Ivan Mikhailovich Biryukov.

    Large certificate for Order of the Red Banner of RSFSR, issued on 4 November 1924 to Commander of the 172nd Rifle Regiment Ivan Mikhailovich Biryukov. Archivally mounted on linen and framed.

    Outside of frame measures 15 " by 19 ". Opening in the matt is 9 " by 13 7/8". This document is among the more ornate styles, as opposed to plain earlier certificates for RSFSR Red Banner.

    The award was bestowed "for distinction in battles against the enemies of the Socialist Homeland on 10 January 1921 near the village of Chiryam and on 11 January of the same year near the village of Kaloboin". Research has thus far not enabled us to locate these villages; we believe, however, that they were located in Turkestan. Resistance to the Bolsheviks was particularly fierce there and lasted for well over a decade.

    The document was signed by the Chairman of the Revolutionary Military Council of the Republic but his signature has faded and is no longer visible. The typewritten addition at the bottom reads: /Decree of the Revolutionary Military Council #133 LS, 1922 / Serial number of the badge of the Order #9443/

    Very good overall condition. Having been regularly carried about by Biryukov along with his normal identity papers (as was done by many soldiers in the era), it evidences the same folds that other surviving documents from this period sometimes display. The main artwork and the Greek key border are still clear and attractive. Staple holes on the upper left corner are outside the artwork. The minor separation at some of the folds has been completely stabilized by the linen mounting.

    /Similar document is shown in McDaniel's "Comprehensive Guide to Soviet Orders and Medals", page 67, bottom right/.
