Soviet Order of Glory 3rd class #419366 WW2
Made of solid silver and enamels. Measures 45.76 in width, 48.22 mm in height and it weighs 21.9 gram without its suspension.
This WW2 order is in excellent overall condition. The higher laying parts like the clock in the tower show wear but most details are perfectly visible. The enamel is all present and without repairs and minor flaking only. The order comes with its time period double layer steel suspension and old ribbon.
Probably awarded in the spring of 1945. Great research potential!
The Order of Glory, modelled closely upon the Tsarist Cross of St. George, was awarded to non-commissioned officers and soldiers of the armed forces, as well as junior lieutenants of the air force, for bravery in the face of the enemy. A person initially received the third degree, and would subsequently be promoted to higher degrees for further acts of bravery.
