    Army Championship Badges

    Army Championship Badge

    This badge was established in 1959 in three degrees: gold, silver and bronze. The inscriptions for the silver and bronze grades are "HADSEREG BAJNOKSÁG", (i.e. ARMY CHAMPIONSHIP), but for the gold grade is "HADSEREG BAJNOK" (i.e. ARMY CHAMPION). During the first four years the badges indicated the year in which the award was made. At the same time for the silver and bronze grades there was on the balls a roman "II" and "III" respectively. The ball and the badge were monolithic. These badges are rare.

    From 1963 the indication of the year was discontinued, but the badge still remained monolithic for some more years, but later a separate silver ball was attached to the badge on the top of the basic ball with a screw.

    So, Gents, the whole collection would consist of 18 badges:

    - 12 with indication of years (1959, 1960, 1961, 1962)

    - 3 without years, but no additional silver ball

    - 3 without years, but with silver balls.
