50 Years of Communist Membership Badge


Recommended Posts

and the back. These badges are so tiny, that I could imagine a 70 year old man having serious difficulty trying to get this onto his lapel. I can barely open the pin myself!

Hi Paul,

Unfortunately, the doc you have is not related to the 50 Years Badge. :off topic:

This doc is for the 3 classes of the Medals for Irreproachable Service in the Armed Forces of the USSR. So, 1920 (1970 -50) is fure fiction there...

Cheers.

And you have a nice 50 Years badge. I agree they are very tiny and desirable... :jumping: And you ahve the original box with it.

Cheers.

Paul, Christophe,

The document is for the 3 classes of the Medals for Irreproachable Service in the KGB, not the Armed forces. In this case, you'll need a set of long-service medals with roman digits on the fron (X, XV and XX).

The box is indeed the original one but ... it is missing the original foam :unsure::rolleyes:

Hi Marc,

You indeed are correct about KGB. I did not go beyond the generic name of these... (according to PMD).

Cheers.

Wow!! The KGB? What is a fair price for these documents these days?

Paul,

No need to get overly excited with these initials, you definitely won't be able to retire on that :rolleyes:

I pick these up for under $10 a piece...

Hmm. THIS award booklet for the 3 KGB long service medals was WITH the correct medals another member asked me about. And the scan that YOU showed me with the Party 50 when you were ordering it WAS the correct one--

obviously the seller has scrambled your two purchases. I hope this can be rectified.

You've got HIS paper for HIS 3 medals and he presumably will be receiving YOUR paper for YOUR pin. :banger:

An amazing mix up :rolleyes:

The seller sent Paul my booklet for KGB medals, looks like Paul's document is coming my way ....

I guess both of us will be straightened out in a couple of weeks :unsure:
