Recommended Posts

The only two I have seen have had green paint in the middle like the above. Were there aany "white" ones, like the Soviet higher academies?

How rare are these badges to find on the market? Very nice use of original photographs. We do not see too many of these.

Hi Paul, i'm a noob of military collection but according to my experience this badge is one of the most rare, expecially the white-one. I have a lot og orig pics showing badges and other decorations.

Waiting for other opinions about the rarity of this decoration.

all the best

I received just today this badge. It appears an academy award but it's different from the others in shape and colour.

This is dark blue. Anyone have some info?

These seem to reflect Soviet designs for their civil univerities/colleges and the M1961 Lieutenants' schools--same translucent blue. How to date these without paperwork?.....

Thank you for creating this chart. How certain are you that the green badge never existed?

Hi Paul, I'm very certain (but not 100%^^) that the green one is not in original colour, because:

1. I've searched my big photo archive --> nothing,

2. I've searches in my cuban FAR book --> nothing,

3. the official organ of the FAR "Verde Olivo" doesn't say anything about a green badge,

4. the green badge has no enamelling, but every another academy badges which I saw had one.

Following slavishly the Soviet sytem, green would be for Border troops under State Security, not the military armed forces?
