Soviet Medals & Certificates!

Available now some WWII Soviet Campaign Medals, with the Defense of Medals being the 1st of a few other Series that will follow, such as Partisan Medals, Capture of Medals, Liberation of Medals, etc

All and each one of the Medals on the Defense of Series come with Docs, which are optional. Even if I can't obviously guarantee all Docs belong to the same person these particular Medals were awarded, they are nevertheless 100% authentic and a great piece of History and in other aspect perfectly match each Medal.


Other Medals from other Series may or may not come with Docs.

Welcome to Dolf's Soviet & Mongolian Awards

As mentioned on my profile, the main goal of this blog is selling those pieces I have kept for a few years.
For most pieces I'll list them with a fixed priced.
Occasionally some pieces will be sold in an auction style.
These pieces will be listed with a starting price, and the date the auction will be closed.
In some cases there will be a Reserve Price for these, below which I won't feel obliged to sell them. Collectors interested in bidding can do so by making an offer on the comments link below the message where those pieces will be listed. Please identify yourself when bidding. These comments must be approved by the blog administrator so anonymous bids won't be accepted. You can also email me using the email address under "Contact".
When a bid reaches my Reserve Price, that will be revealed. Other bidders interested in placing higher bids may continue to do so until the closure of the auction. By the end of the auction, the higher bidder will win the right to buy that piece for the amount of his bid.

Pictures of some pieces will be shown, especially when the sale is on an auction format. For those pieces making part of a list, there will be no pictures posted, but I'll gladly email pictures for those interested.

Books, Certificates, Docs and other Militaria related to the subject will also be listed when available.

With the exception of perhaps a few Portuguese Awards I might be interested in, I'm not interested in trading the pieces shown for other pieces, so please don't ask.

Payment to be made in Euros.
Methods accepted (in all and every case please email me for details) :

-Bank transfer
-Western Union
-PayPal

Other possibilities that might fit you better can be arranged, with the exception of cash sent by mail.

Pieces will be shipped only by Registered mail with a tracking number, after payment has been received.

All items are 100% original and have a lifetime guarantee.
