Dear Andrisek
(hope I got your name right)
I am a modest collector of USSR medals, from the age of 16 (now 40) and I finally after years of collecting any originals I could get i managed to get them all in a few drawers - but here in Malta it is difficult to find them - I am keen to see what I can either buy or exchange although the ones I have doubles are few - and probably a consumate collector as you already have them - however - I am not sure what is the price you quote for the medals - $, E or Stg. Alternatively if you can guide me where I could find the genuine pieces, it would be great. As from what I read, you are a no nonsense collector both on prices and what is really a good collection - I shall be happy to list my collection and let you know what I have - I definetly miss the Order of the Hero of the Soviet Union, Alexander Nevsky and quite a few others - in any case - let me cut short otherwise I shall never stop talking about my collection. Hope we shall correspond soon - and thanks
Karl Camilleri

I am an English person, living in Bulgaria. While digging in my garden, I have found what appears to be a Russian, medal/coin. Made of Brass or Bronze, 4 cm in diameter.On the obverse, there is the head of a man/woman, facing to the right. It appears to be wearing a laurel wreath around the head. The Head is encircled in laurel leaves, around the edge of the coin. On the other side, is the twin head eagle of russia, holding a globe in its right claw, and a sword in it's left. There are cyrillic letters around the edge of the coin.. CAN YOU HELP TO IDENTIFY PLEASE ? Should I give it to a museum ? Many thanks for your help in advance. Yours John H Key

I was hoping you could help me identify what I believe to be a Soviet decoration of some sort that belonged to a family member. He was a Naval officer posted as a "diplomat" in Moscow just after WWII. It is a cross made of what appears to be rose gold (I can't read the marks). On the front, the arms of the cross are covered in red enamel backed in a guilloche pattern. The arms are wider at the ends than at the base, and finish with a fairly dramatic "V" that indents toward the center. Each of the 8 points ends in a sphere about the size of a pepper corn. Between the outer ends of the points is a ribbed third of a circle, like a festoon. The center of the piece on both sides is a white circle (enamel or porcelain or something similar), with something that looks like a double "S" (one upright and one slightly twisted clockwise) hand-painted in red. On the front, it is encircled by a bas-relief laurel wreath in gold, while the back is framed in a simple band of gold. In my novice opinion, it was meant to be hung on a ribbon around one's neck, not pinned to a uniform. It hangs from a loop that is about 13/16" long, 1/16" wide, and 1/4" deep. The entire cross is about 1 and 13/16" across.

If you could wade through my description, and you have any ideas about what this might be, I would so appreciate your help. This man was posted in London prior to and possibly to some extent during WWII, so it could be British, but the shape of the cross makes me believe it is Russian.

Many thanks for your assistance.

Best regards,
Why not send me a scan or foto... it does not sound like a Soviet order though...

Hi, I'm not a gold dust buyer but a buyer of soviet medals...

I am big into buying silver bullion and have heard that Alexander Nevsky and other orders contain silver and precious medal. Is there any advise you can give me as to what medals are silver or gold? I know that Hero of the USSR is pure gold... Thanks!
Many soviet orders and medals are made of silver, various types of gold and even platinum. Hero of Labour and order of Lenin are from gold also!!

Hi! I noticed your Russian Federation section was a bit short on awards but not on questions from you about many of them. May I invite you to visit the official web site of OMSA?
Once there click on IMAGES, MEDAL IMAGES, scroll down to Europe East, then down again to Soviet Union and Russian Federation, then on Post-Soviet Russia and other Republics. There you will find over 900 researched (by me) modern Russian awards including Presidential decrees and ministerial orders. If you don't find a particular award there, chances are very high it is un official. I've been actively researching RF awards for years now.
Hope to see you in our forums!
Thank you ... do you think we can exchange links? I have very few RF pieces as I concentrate on Soviet ones.

I am specifically interested in WWII medals and orders, those that would have been award during the war, no later than 1945. Please email me to discuss what you might have for sale. Thanks.
I prefer to exchange ... see my list!

I recently purchased two WWII era (I hope) medals on eBay. They are the Russian Order of the Red Banner Type 3, Var 4, #212,385 and the Russian Order of the Red Star Type 2, Var 3, Subvar 4, #193,749.

Do the numbers and medal types sync up? How can I find the approximate date of manufacture and awarding of specific orders and medals based upon their number, type, etc.?

This is a lot of questions, but if you could point me toward a reliable source of information I will take it from there. My sense is that fakes are rampant.

I am interested in the "Cross for the Defense of Transdniestria" (#53). I have a fairly good collection of PMR awards, but do not have one of these. My collection, as it stands, may be viewed at:

I do have a couple of duplicate awards to trade, or I may be able to by the cross (I use Paypal). Let me know.
