Soviet WWII Red Star, Nr.1463221, Researched, Red Army Senior Lieutenant

Quantity: 
Price:  $195.00
 
Item #42636

Original period manufacture. Deep red enamel on the obverse, with a  silver patina finish to the reverse, serial numbered 1463221, being within the date range of a 1945 award. Presented to Senior Lieutenant Seguei Ivanovich Elkin, 81st Infantry Division, 6 March 1945.

I began collecting Soviet medals and awards around 1990, right after the collapse of the Berlin Wall, being quite taken by their beautiful construction and design. I remember thinking how unfortunate it was, that in spite of the awards being in most cases serial numbered, they were not researchable unless you had the record book. When some minimal research became available around 1995, I was delighted to pay for whatever information could be obtained.

It was a hit, or miss affair, sometimes the results were truly amazing, other times, as in this instance, the results were less interesting. Still, a name was provided, and unit number, providing good clues for further study.  

The research provided with this Red Star was purchased by me, through R&M International in Bellvue Washington in the late 1990's. It has been in my collection since that time, and now due to changing collecting interests, this nice Red Star needs to find a new home.
