    $8,500.00 Gold Star Medal of a Hero of the Soviet Union, #4830, awarded in October 1943 to an Infantry NCO for exceptional personal bravery and initiative shown during the forced crossing of the Dnieper. He led a tiny first group of soldiers that captured German trenches, replaced his fallen company commander in fierce hand-to-hand combat on the bridgehead, and repelled numerous counterattacks of vastly superior enemy forces. This extraordinary soldier was declared killed in action on two or possibly three occasions depending on the account (each time, a KIA notice was sent to his family) but every time came out alive although badly wounded. Prior to becoming a Hero of the Soviet Union, he had been awarded with an Order of the Patriotic War for shooting down three enemy aircraft in the Battle of Kursk as commander of a machine gun crew. The Hero Star is in very fine to excellent condition, free of significant flaws and with complete original suspension included. Comes with archival research.

    $750.00 Hero of the Soviet Union ID Card (aka "Small Certificate"), issued to an Il-2 Shturmovik Pilot. He was made a Hero of the Soviet Union in August 1945 for completing 114 highly successful ground attack missions starting from the Battle of Kursk. The document is in excellent condition. Comes with copies of the award recommendations from the Russian archives as well as a copy and English translation of the article about the recipient in the catalog "Heroes of the Soviet Union."
