Desk Award To Major-General Petr Grigor'evich Kostenko

Hi gentlemen, I don't know if this subject has a place here, here's a piece given to gen-mayor piotr grigorevitch kostenko, 1st deputy chief of military region of odessa, from the general mayor of artillery E.G. Bobrov. Odessa, 1978.

very kitsch!

Moved...

I moved this thread from flags....

These type of desk awards are neat, and pretty common. I have seen many for sale in Russia, but they are a MAJOR pain to bring back on your own. I was with a friend last year in Russia and Ukraina and he had 4 of thses types of awards in his suitcase; every customs official wanted to spend about an hour each going through his bag! I had to wait for him many times ( we flew 9 times).

Still, he now has a neat little collection.

they're now very rare here. A friend of mine has a huge one consisting of two Yakovlev 28 "Firebar" jet interceptors pointing towards the sky, a model scale in metal 2 feet long!

I forgot the compulsory T-54, PT-76 and other guns...
