An original WWII Soviet Order of the Red Star here, displays nicely but shows obvious damage to the enamel of the 9 o'clock arm. Clear serial number (1,303,529) on the reverse. This Order has been researched, and was awarded to Maj. Ivan Dmitrievich Rubtsov in 1944, in recognition of his skullful command of a vechicle repair platoon in field conditions. Rubtsov is also recognized for training qualified people from nothing, and carrying out work that was impossible before the war even in well organized repair shops. This Order of the Red Star is visible in Rubstov's service portrait.
