Soviet Order of the Red Star #2041791
Awarded to Black Sea Fleet naval machinist, foreman Vasily Ivanovich Grushin (Василий Иванович Грушин)
Grushin was also awarded the Medal of Ushakov. The citation for this medal is added to the images in the picture gallery
Made of silver and enamels. Measures 48.01 mm in width, 46.09 mm in height and weighs 30.1 grams without its screwplate. The serial number is located at the 6 o’clock position and the mint mark on the 12 o’clock position of its reverse.
This original order of the Red Star is in an excellent, well above average condition. The details are mostly visible and the enamels problem free with some minor contact marks only. There have been no repairs and the screw is full length. It comes with a well fitted and time period screwplate.
Unfortunately the citation for the Red Star is not available online at this moment. This might change in the future
