Awarded to Sapper and Senior Lieutenant Nikolai Ustinovich Sagach (Николай Устинович Сагач)


Nominated for the titel ‘Hero of the Soviet Union’


Awarded for bravery and being one of the first crossing the Dnieper



Made of solid silver and enamels. Measures 40.79 mm in height and 36.81 mm in width. It weighs 25.6 gram. The serial number and the mint mark are located at the 6 o’clock position of its reverse.


The order is in excellent, far above average condition with the details crisp and much gold plating present. Even the higher laying parts such as the center wreath and the torch still show their details. The red enamel is in far better condition than most early Red Banners. It only shows enamel loss on one ray of the center ster. The white enamel is flawless. The order has not been converted to a suspension type and the screwpost is full length. It comes with its time period silver screw plate.


Great research, in excellent condition. Scarce as such!



Short Description of his feat of arms:

“Senior Lieutenant Nikolai Ustinovich Sagach was among the first to cross the Dnieper River as part of a shock group. Under his personal supervision his company cleared obstacles in the enemy defenses, and over a 24-hour period they fought off a number of enemy counterattacks. At a critical moment; while mining the avenues of approach for the advancing German tanks; he roused his sappers and the rifle units of the 814th Rifle Regiment to action through his audacious gumption. In a sudden strike he attacked the advancing Germans from the flank, as a result of which the enemy was thrown back more than a kilometer and the tanks ran onto the mines; thus creating the necessary conditions for our attacking infantry. During this battle, which took place on September 28, 1943 near the village of Soshinovka, his company killed more than 30 Germans. He himself killed 1 officer and 4 soldiers.

During subsequent engagements he repeatedly exhibited initiative, and aside from his immediate assignments pertaining to mining the front line he led his company in a counterattack against attacking enemy troops. Officer Sagach is a fearless and bold commander.

For a number of heroic deeds he deserves the highest level of distinction; the title of Hero of the Soviet Union.
