Soviet Order of the Red Banner #20464


Федор Трофимович Кривопиша


Awarded to Jr. Lieutenant Fedor Trofimovich Krivopisha (Федор Трофимович Кривопиша)


For exemplary execution of the combat mission on the front of struggle against the Finish Whites


Krivopisha was declared MIA and has been in a German POW camp for several years


Rare and much sought after ‘MONDVOR’ variation with only a few hundred produced



Made of solid silver and enamels. Measures 40.53 mm in height, 36.66 mm in width and weighs 23.3 gram without its screwplate. The serial number and the MONDVOR mint mark are located at the 6 o’clock position of its reverse. The minimum known serial number for this variation is #20120 and the maximum is #20739.

This original order of the Red Banner is in a nice, above average condition with most details visible and crisp and a fair amount of gold plating still present. Despite the bubbly surface of the enamels, the order maintained almost all of its original enamels. Only the top red banner shows a chips on the top right part and at the bottom, above the hammer and sickle. The reverse is in excellent condition with an attractive patina and several small scratches but nothing distracting from the overall appeal. There have been no repairs and the screwpost has not been shortened. It comes with its time period silver screwplate.

The the dull shine of the enamels suggest this award to be a ground dug. This research enforces this presumption.


A very rare and desirable piece!


Jr. Lt. KRIVOPISHA was bestowed with the Order of the Red Banner #20464 by decree of Supreme Soviet of USSR on 11.04.1940 for “exemplary execution of the combat mission on the front of struggle against the Finish Whites”.
