Order of Glory 3rd class #506560
Made of solid silver and enamels. Measures 46.97 in width, 48.28 mm in height and it weighs 22.9 grams (not including its suspension).
In nice overall condition with medium wear to the raised parts. The details on the tower still perfectly visible but the wreath and the edges of the lettering on its reverse have somewhat faded. The enamels are problem free without chipping or repairs and show some contact marks only. Both sides show a light patina and the order comes with a time period double layer steel suspension. Its connection has been cut.
Probably awarded in the summer of 1945 so with good 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.
