Well, I didn't even know one like this existed! (And I thought I had all the books!) So I guess that could be considered rare! If you ever think of selling it, let me know, okay? ;)

Like all Soviet books of this genre, it was not produced in great numbers. I have seen at least one copy here in the west. The dealer in question did not want to sell it but allowed me to make copies of portions thereof.

Sorry man, people keep forgetting that not everyone can read Russian. :rolleyes: :D

It's a document for 2x Hero of Soviet Union.

This solves a mystery for me :) In the foreword of the HSU-number guide the authors writes that there already are good refrence books out there, even one for dubble heros. This must be the book. Now to get one...

ek-1939: Could you please post author, year it was printed and in some/most russian collector books you can find out how many were printed, this too? Or you could just send it to me ;)

That's intreresting...

It says there were 35,000 copies made and the price of this document is 2Rubles & 45kopecs. That's a serious price tag in 1973!... I remember a loaf of bread was 20kopecs...

Rusty.
