Complete with original riband mounted on 5 x sided plate mount. The reverse with hinged pin and clasp fittings

The insignia is officially numbered 234088

The number denotes a contemporary Second World War issue of the decoration awarded some time during the second half of 1944 (the numbers awarded in the second half of 1945 were in the range 89000-260000)

Instituted 8 November 1943. The decoration was awarded in three classes or grades, and was intended to be exclusively awarded for acts of gallantry and distinguished service, by deserving personnel of the Red Army, Air Force & Navy personnel. The original decree stipulated that the Order of Glory be awarded to privates and sergeants of the Red Army, and to aviation junior lieutenants, who displayed glorious feats of bravery, courage and fearlessness in combat for the Soviet Motherland

The Order of Glory, which was modelled closely after the Tsarist Cross of St. George, was divided into three distinct classes. Like the Cross of St. George, a soldier would initially be recommended for the order's lowest class - in the case of the Order of Glory its third class. Subsequent distinct acts of valor could result in the soldier being recommended for the order's two remaining classes - its second and first class - which were awarded sequentially. Soldiers who received each of the order's three classes were referred to as a "Full Cavalier of the Order of Glory" (Russian: "полный кавалер ордена Славы"). In Soviet society they were accorded the same rights and privileges as those granted to personnel who had received the Hero of the Soviet Union title. All told, 2,656 Red Army soldiers (including four men who were also awarded the Hero of the Soviet Union title as well as four women) would attain Full Cavalier status

The Order of Glory was worn on the left side of the chest. In the presence of other USSR orders and medals it was worn immediately after the Order of the Badge of Honor. If worn in the presence of awards of the Russian Federation, the latter have precedence
