Help with this Soviet badge marked "FIA Lyon"

Recommended Posts

Can you help me with this strange, Soviet badge, please?

I've collected Soviet items for years now and have never seen a Soviet badge manufactured by a Capitalist Country.  This Soviet style looks to me 1950s, but It could be earlier, even pre-WW2.  It's a long service (10 years I assume) badge issued by a 'sports committee' in the USSR.  Google shows me FIA Lyon started (and still exists) as a badge and medal manufacturer in 1928.

Any ideas?

In my opinion the topic belongs to Soviet badges division.

True, but I know what it is.  I just don't know why it was made in France?  Was hoping one of the learned members here knew a little about FIA Lyon.
