Estimated market value:
This Order was named after the military leader Alexander Vasilyevich Suvorov (1730-1800), who never lost a battle. The name was used to rally Russian soldiers during WWII, when it was going badly for the Russian forces.
The III Class medal was awarded to regimental, battalion and company commanders, as well as regimental chiefs of staff. It was conferred for decision-making in a bold attack against a superior enemy and subsequent destruction, and for resistance against a superior enemy's attack.
This type was a transitional medal from Type I to Type III, and was in production from 1943 to 1944.
The obverse Russian inscription translates to: "Alexander Suvorov".
Obv: Александр Суворов
