VERY blurry scans, so I cannot see all the details. The side with the Soviet seal will show how old it is by how many national slogan ribbons for each republic are there--

8 on the left, 1 on the bottom, 7 on the right would be 1946-56

7-1-7 would be 1956-91.

That side says

"Put the plans of the Party into practice!"

Impossible to read what it says to the left upper corner from Lenin's head. Underneath it says:

"Challenge/competition Banner

for the highest figures

in socialist competition"

I have a nice little red velvet pennant with gold fringes and a big hammer and sickle on one side. On the other side it says

"For the best milk maid" :cheeky:
