This original order of the Red Banner is made of silver and enamels. It measures 41.14 mm in height, 36.72 mm in width and weighs 22.9 gram without its screwplate. The serial number and mint mark are located at the 6 o’clock position of its reverse.


In a nice, worn condition. The details are mostly present and the higher laying parts like the center wreath show medium wear. The enamel shows chipping and is partially lost on the left side of the top banner and on two of the rays of the center star. The white enamel is fully present and without damage or repairs. Because of minor solder residue on top of the order’s reverse, it appears the awardee made some sort of suspension device to wear the order according to the new 1943 regulations of wearing Soviet awards. However, The screwpost is original and has not been shortened. The order comes with its time period silver screwplate.

He was the first to rush the German trenches and eliminated 8 enemy soldiers and one officer with his submachine-gun. He also elimination garrisons of two heavily fortified pillboxes. The battalion was successful in its operations and took control over the enemy trench line.

On 10 January 1943 near the hill 139.7, he led the battalion into assault on the heavily fortified enemy line near the ravine Satu, Opytnoe Pole, Drevniy Val. His skilful command and personal courage resulted in breaching the enemy defence line and the hill being taken by the battalion. In this engagement, FEDOSOV personally captured 4 dugouts and 3 fortified pillboxes, eliminated their garrisons and took 9 Germans prisoner. On 11 January 1943, he repelled 3 enemy counterattacks supported by armour. The exhibited courage and bravery resulted in all enemy attacks being repelled: 70 enemy troops eliminated, 1 tank hit.
