Shane,

If you want realistic prices look on the dealers web pages. There are three of them on this board. These are realistic prices and the items are not fakes.

If you want to wait for your prices, I hoope you have another hobby as you will not be buying any Soviet awards anytime soon.

Good luck,
Ed

lets say if you buy this stuff paying double of your prices, you still can consider yourself lucky.

$100 for Lenin with document sounds attractive considering it contains almost 30g of gold and any jewel shop would pay over $350 for that as of piece of gold.

Euguene,

The line reads:

$100 - Lenin with matching document containing a photo as a swap for my Lenin with a document with does NOT have a matching serial number.

I already have a Lenin, I just wanted to 'upgrade' to one with a photo id and a matching order book.

Kind Regards,
Shane Cook.

Vlad,
First, you have to add 15-20 % commission to the price.
Second, how do you know Nakhimov and Odessa medals were original? They sell fakes as well.

Eugene,

good points, you never know what you'll get once the auction is over - they may very well be fakes.

I just thought the prices were low 3 yrs ago at that specific auction, they sell awards for a lot more now.

That's almost $40 a piece!

Some of his badges may sell for $40 or more, but majority will not. It's too expensive for the entire set.

If Prices are rising.............

Then someone in Bulgaria hasn't heard about the lot going on Ebay currently for $310 US. Includes a Lenin, 1st and second award ORB, OPW1st class, defense of Kiev, etc with documents. If they're legit it's a deal....
