Soviet phaleristic items became rather expensive to buy. Many collectors serializing on the Soviet Orders, Medals and Badges do not have the opportunity to see some rare specimens, not to mention to buy. But when such an opportunity arises, even more experienced collectors may find many questions about the authenticity or degree of restoration of an item. Just to help you to have more information I begin to publish the series of high-quality pictures on cards 4 by 6 with detailed parameters. Every batch of cards contains the pictures of the rare, unique or just expensive types and variations of the Soviet Orders, Medals and badges. One side of the card contains the picture of the obverse and reverse of the item, with some of the important details. The impressions are given with the highest possible resolution allowed by the format. The other side of a card contains brief description and the parameters weight, all possible sizes and distances, name of the person awarded and number of the Order booklet, if known. Also mentioned the current location of the item, if known. Sample of the card is shown below. I case when the item requires more detailed pictures (like the Order of the Patriotic War serial number 30), then it will be shown on two cards one is for the obverse with details, another for the reverse.

All the items are of the ideal, excellent of very good condition, with the exception of the absolutely unique variations. For instance, the Order of the Patriotic War 2nd class serial number 30 with the exception of the damaged enamel on the upper stars arm, all other parts are in very good condition.

Every set will include no less then 18 cards. All the cards are numbered consequently, with the numbering continues through. Hence, the first cards of the second set will have number 19, and first card of the third set will be numbered 37 and so on.

The idea of presenting the information if such format is based on the convenience of use. If you can not connect to the Web or communicate with the specialist at certain moment, then you may carry there cards in you pocket, since their size allows.

If my initiative interests the collectors community, then in the next issues I will present not only the new variations, but some of the new specimen if the variations presented before (since even if the badge was minted with the same mold, it may have slightly different measurements). And hence you may collect the catalog of your own.
