Not mine :cry: unfortunately.

it IS for sale... I just saw it online at some Russian site

At the risk of having this post deleted, the high-level detail is:

Starting price is $750, but the seller will sell to the highest bidder.

I would not be surprised if this clears a thousand or two (especially withy today's prices)...

Just to keep ruining everybody's day, I was offered this type of early triangular suspension for $20 a piece with backplate in St Petersburg (multiples available, of course). In my opinion, better make sure the link has not been cut!!!

I don't get it...

Maybe it's just me, but I don't see that this piece is worth even $750... Sure, it has a low number, but I've sold low numbered Glories, Red Banners, Pat Wars (with similar digit numbers) for half, and even a quarter of that price. Additionally, it has a cut ring, with drastically reduces the value of it (I had a very low four-digit MM once, but with the five-sided suspention that I couldn't even get more than $75 for!) AND it's missing it's backing plate!

Just my thoughts...

This price is absurd. Particularly with the cut ring. If the ring wasn't cut AND it had a document with the recipients photograph I might pay $250 tops for it. I would be buying it for myself as trying to resell anywhere above that would be pointless.

I scanned through EBay's offering out of boredom and there are people trying to get $150 for a Type 3 Order of the Red Banner. So perhaps this is part of that logic.
