Those badges stopped being awarded about the time the Wehrmacht invaded in 1941.

Here's another photo of the Otlichnik RKKA badge in wear at war's end

What's on the back of your photo to identify his name, unit, and date it was certified?

Ahhhhhh, too bad! From the concealed buttons front of his gimnastyorka, this probably pre-dates the Great Purge.
