If this came from a Museum, I assume the museum sold it after independance at it was not stolen??

They both said "Hard to say, there’s nothing obviously wrong but I've never seen one of these before" or words to that effect. My closest collector friend there said "Maybe 95% or better that it's real, but we don't have anything to compare it to." The old guy who I bought it from is very highly regarded and well-respected, and that also influenced my decision. In the end I decided that if there was nothing clearly wrong to those guys and the deal didn't smell bad, I'd rather do the deal than wonder if I should have.

What the heck. What’s life without risk? Well, yeah, “safe” does come to mind.

Order of the Red Banner of Labor - Type 1

Type 1 of the Georgian Order of the Red Banner of Labor. This is an awfully (other words are simply amiss) rare order.

Re: "Red Banner Of Labour" Order.

It would seem that at least some (if not all) of this booklet checks out.

1900 born, 1918 enlisted, 5 times wounded, Commander of the 414th Division Colonel Georgij Gavrilovich Kurashvili was awarded a Suvorov II by Ukaz of 23rd October 1943 and Red Banner by Ukaz of 13th December 1942.

Here's the Suvorov II Citation.

Re: "Red Banner Of Labour" Order.

Also, here is the official Republic Of Georgia biography of the later Major-General who died in 1978.


გიორგი გაბრიელის ძე ყურაშვილი

გენერალ - მაიორი გიორგი გაბრიელის ძე ყურაშვილი დაიბადა 1900 წელს ცაგერის რაიონის სოფელ ნაკურალეში , ღარიბი გლეხის ოჯახში . 1918 წელს ამხ . ყურაშვილი შედის საკავშირო კ . პ . ( ბ ) რიგებში . იგი აქტიურად მონაწილეობდა პარტიზანულ რაზმში , იბრძოდა საქართველოში საბჭოთა ხელისუფლების დამყარებისათვის . 1921 წლიდან პარტიული მობილიზაციით ამხ . გ . ყურაშვილი საბჭოთა არმიის რიგებშია . მას მთელი რიგი საპასუხისმგებლო თანამდებობები ეკავა . სამამულო ომის დაწყებამდე იყო დივიზიის შტაბის უფროსი . დიდი სამამულო ომის დროს ამხ . ყურაშვილმა აქტიური მონაწილეობა მიიღო სამშობლოს დაცვაში , გერმანელთა ურდოების განადგურებაში . ამხ . ყურაშვილი მრავალჯერ იყო მოხსენებული უმაღლესი მთავარსარდლის მახანაგ სტალინის ბრძანებებში . ამჟამად ამხ . გ . გ . ყურაშვილი საქართველოს სსრ სამხედრო კომის არია .

ამხ . გ . ყურაშვილი აქტიურ მონაწილეობას იღებს საზოგადოებრივ - პოლიტიკურ მუშაობაში . არის თბილისის მესამე მოწვევის საქალაქო საბჭოს დეპუტატი . დაჯილდოებულია ლენინის ორდენით , წითელი დროშის სამი ორდენით , შრომის წითელი

დრო I ს ორდენით , სუვოროვის მესამე ხარისხის ორდენით , მედლებით " წითელი არმიის XX და XXX წელი ", " კავკასიის დაცვისათვის ", "1941-1945 წლების დიდ სამამულო ომში გერმანიაზე გამარჯვებისათვის " და " იაპონიაზე გამარჯვებისათვის ".


It incorrectly reads "Suvorov III" but also adds XX and XXX Army Jubilee Medals, "For The Defence Of The Caucasus", VOG and VOJ. These Medals would not be listed in an Order book.

The official Soviet portrait too. (Looks like mid-1944 to early 1945)

Re: "Red Banner Of Labour" Order.

Finally the icing on the cake.

Nearly all the Orders in the book in wear. Just a second Long service(?) Lenin to be added.
