Ed,

I agree 100% with you: wide price ranges - of course, but price ranges. Do you have a 6-digit-Red-Star for USD 17,- ? I never found one in Vienna at all.

My opinion ist, that that prices at the moment are idiotically low, if you consider what stands behind such an award: Glory 3cl for a small McDonalds lunch for you and your family? That's ****!

Wait for the demand from Russia and you will make the business of your life. All the SU-awards of the highest level were sold within some hours to members of the "Russian Mafia" in Vienna - 8 years ago. In 1994, when I just paid the USD 1.200,- to the dealer in Vienna for the "Glory-Trio" and put the 3 awards + booklet into my bag, the telephone of the dealer was ringing with a Russian person at the line, who terrible wanted to buy the "Glory-Trio", but the awards where already in my bag and they dealer received the USD 1.200,- in cash.... (the "Glory-Trio" and many other - rather expensive - awards were financed by my (now) 93-years-old grand mother, Leopoldine Makas, who is at excellent health and still remembers the funeral of our last emporer in Austria in 1916).

We have to remember the heroic deeds of the Soviet citizens during WWII.

So: Wide price ranges are better than nothing at all - I think.

Regards from Vienna
