and the document for #1266

  • 2 weeks later...

A really interesting badge, and one about which we need to know much more. It screams "early".

Here's what I have:

First class ? Type 1.1 (all gilt) - Low = ??, High = ??

First class ? Type 1.2 (hammer only gilt, cog-wheel silver) (B# A 61.1) - Low = ??, High = 4665

Second class (silver) (B# A 61.2) - Low = 1964, High = 4631

Third class (bronze) (B# A 61.3) - Low = 303, High = ??

Correct and expand, please.

The only one I have so far is a second class (#1964), shown with its screw-nut from those friendly northern artists.

Apparantly, there are 2 variations:

- the whole of the obverse is goldplated

- only the hammer, scroll BNMAU and flag are goldplated

Here's mine

Indeed, there are two variations of this goldplated gold grade.

Here is mine, entirely goldplated, S/N 3003.

Nice, thanks.

What are the screwplates on these various badges? Are there patterns. (Assuming, of course, that no one has played mix-and-match with the screwplates?!)


Despite not being 100% sure, I suppose all Types and Variations have the same screwplate, which is the one shown on pic A 61.1-R, on page 72 of Dr. Battushig's book.

At least all mine have the same screwnut!

Interesting, my 2nd class has a Moscow artists coop one (see above), but I guess any of these could be replacements?


I have one of these screwplates, but for one of my Khalkhin Gol Badges, the flat reverse Type. The mirror reverse Type of my Kalkhin Gol Badge has a different screwplate.

As all my Udarnik Badges (the entirely goldplated, the partially goldplated, the silver grade and the bronze grade) have the same kind of screwplate (as the one shown on the reference book mentioned above, as on my pic above) I believe mine are the right ones for this Udarnik Badge!

Replacement screwnuts are very, but really very usual on Mongolian awards, as we know :(

Just my two cents,

The ones I have, gold and silver, all have the Monetnyi Dvor screwnut as shown in post 1



Like this one I'm posting, right?

All mine are also of this type.

A working scanner makes things a lot easier... no more 1MB digital photpgraphs:)

On the right: Gold (not full) - 1000

On the left: Silver - 1.370

Note, slightly different color of screw.

I thought what better way for a new member to say hi than to make a contribution.

So here goes:

This is our (My brother and I collect....collectively) first class Udarnik badge type 1.2 and a rather interesting document.

This document contains a record of the workers productivity over the years '48 to '51,

and by the looks of things he worked his @#$ off!

I've been trying to translate the various texts but I've only had limited success.

The cover is very hard to read so I've added the whole text, including an as of yet unidentified quote by Stalin.

"техникииг эзэмшсэн шинэ хучин бугдинг шиидвэрдэнэ"

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
