do you have the links to any online guides/instructions as to wear on soviet uniforms the medals are worn? If you perhaps have a book with the instructions could you scane a diagram perhaps for me? many thanks, your help is greatly appreciated, tom lennon.
Hi Tom,

not online with me but on the links page there is the site of Drabik ( Otherwise every Soviet award has a resolution of the USSR Supreme Soviet which instructs how and where to wear a particular award. I have a book but its in Russian. On the forum there was also a person trying to sell a uniform. Hope this helps,

Great site! Do you know of or have any reputable contacts in Kiev? I just arrived & have become interested in collecting -but- as we all know, fakes abound. Any additional information on Soviet medal collecting (the name and source for a really recent catalog would help), woulb most appreciated. Spacibo!
Dear Rob,

congratulations on your new posting and I wish you every success in collecting.
The book you should get is AVERS 6, recently published, that is a must but its in Russian mind you. Then there is Paul Mac Daniels, but its rather outdated.Scans and photos are generally not the best when looking for authenticity!
The best is still going to the web, I have many good links on my site, but the very best is seeing them and having them in hand, comparing with real ones, talking to people, it takes years. You also need precise weights, good magnification and knowing what to look for, but thre is no one single source I am afraid. I have no one in Kiev and it is awash with fakes and overpriced items for beginners, that much I know. Prices are different for every piece depending on year of issue, variation etc.. In every case go only to reputable dealers who will give you a money-back guarantee.
Good luck and thanks for visiting the site.

Hello, I would be very interested in purchasing some of your medals but I don't have any items that i can exchange. Could you make an exception? The ones i was looking at are order or Nevsky on suspension and 20 Years RKK.
Regards Alex
Dear Alex,

I do not have a nevsky on suspension or the 20 years RKKA, please see my awards for exchange page for what I have in duplicate, but really I rarely sell and prefer to exchange.

I have a Order of Service to the Motherland - don't know what degree - serial #49521 that I wish to sell. Also three Chinese/Soviet Friendship medals (each has a different hanger and only the one with a Chinese hanger has Chinese symbols on the back. I have a small silk screen embroidery of Stalin (about 2 1/2" by 4") It has the name spelled "Staline". Let me know if you are interested. I have other medals but nothing fancy because I got rid of my collection about 5 years ago. Thank you and Merry Christmas! (305) 380-6227 Nelson J. Garcia
Dear Garcia,

the number would indicate that its a 3rd degree type two i think but to be sure I would have to see a scan of the reverse. The Staline silk is not of interest for me but perhaps the friendshipe medals, but I would also need the scans too. can you send? Merry Xmas to you too,

In your medals for exchange you list a hero of labour star would you be interested in slling this?? if so what would be your price??? Thanks Martin.
P.S. Very interesting site, excellent.
Dear William,

only if you have something for exchange for this one, for example a 20 years RKKA or Nevski on suspension. I should also add that I have been keeping this one for a friend for a long time, also just for exchange,

An original Medal for 20 Years of the Red Army Type 1 (from 1938 to 1943, on a rectangular suspension) can cost $745.00 (there is currently one for sale for this price on the website of a well known dealer), not $40 !...
The same Medal, Type 2 (on a 5-sided suspension, after 1943) costs around $320.00...

Replicas or copies, are currently for sale on eBay, but even these can cost more than $40.00...

Happy hunting ;-)

Just to add, the prices are about right, but only if you can find one!

Hi .

I am looking for a repro 1938 20 years service in the Red Army medal (don't have $40 for an original that is likely fake anyway...) .
