reverse of the badge above.

Peterse, thanks for the scans.

I have the same badge that you have posted above. This type coded in Bat's book as B 03. has two variations: Var 1 with a screwback reverse and Var 2 with the pinback. Both variations are posted below:

Below are the obverse and reverse scans of the People's Great khural deputees badges. The one on the top is coded as B 03 in Bat's book (no reverse scan is shown in this book for this one) and the one below is coded as B 02 (the reverse of this badge is coded as B 04-R).

If we compare the obverse we can easily see the difference but that is not the case if we look at the reverse. The reverse of B 03 is on the top and the reverse of B02 is below. Both badges have almost identical looking reverse except the overall shape and size of the badge.

Then I would put Deputy of the State Great Khural (circa 1951-1960). I have seen just one type of this badge with a screwback reverse. The picture of the badge is depicted previously. The serial number ranges from 0001-1000. But the Chairman of the SGH Bumtsend in his letter to the Mongolian Embassy in Moscow dated in February 1951, he requests the 100 of such badges be made with a pin back reverse. Therefore, there is a possibility of the same badges to have a pinback reverse. But I have never seen this type of badges with the pinback reverse. Anybody has it? Please post.

This is all so very interesting and I think it is great that you have found such detailed information!

My question is this, which of these Deputy Badges should be the most valuable? In the past year or so I have noticed that many dealers sell the Deputy of the State Great Khural for the lowest price.

Cheers,

Will

Will,

I think all of the badges except the Badge of the People's Great Khural coded as B 02 in Bat's book have the price in the same range. B 02 badge is cheaper.

Here's a nice researched deputy badge (nr 0069) belonging to Ms. Dorjsereenen Ulzii. Born in 1928. "Elected" to Mongolian Communist Parliament in 1951 from Selenge province. 

I received a translation of the bio of the deputy Ulzii and the pages from the Deputy Registry pertaining to her. Comrade Ulzii qualified for nomination to Mongolia Communist Parliament in terms of her gender (women's quota), age (youth quota) and activism. She was elected to State Great Khural of MPR in 1951 and her term expired in 1954. The recommendation (dated 1953) of the local MPRP on her said that she has distanced herself from the public work, got married a wealthy person and left the "Red corner" after she became the SGH deputy and that therefore, she does not deserve to be renominated. The deputy registry referred to was made in 1954, right at the end of the term. It is an updated list and Comrade Ulzii was now classified as "unemployed". Which is weighty justification to be removed from renomination roster.

A bit more info on Ulzii

Longer bio on Ulzii

"Dorjsereenengiin Ulzii

Comrade Ulzii was born in a family of herder Dorjsereenen in Orhontuul county of Selenge province in 1928. Comrade Ulzii spent her childhood helping the parents and finished the primary school.

Comrade Ulzii now works as the head of the “Red Corner” of the Orhontuul county and she fully mobilizes herself in political and public activities taking place in her county. Since taking over the work of the “Red Corner”, she has been consistently improving her knowledge and competency.  She skillfully organizes the work of the “Red Corner” towards making the public familiar with the content of the revolutionary art, party and government policies, news on the international situation and developments in the field of education and science.

The “Red Corner” under the leadership of comrade Ulzii unites 28 voluntary performers divided into 3 art groups. The groups perform on regular basis. In 1950, the “Red Corner” held 61 concerts and 12 lectures. Thanks to the efforts of Comrade Ulzii, the Orkhontuul county “Red Corner” became the best “Red Corner” of the province.

Comrade Ulzii has worked as the Chair of the County Women’s Council for the last several years. She is highly respected by the women of the county for she exerts all her efforts towards increasing the involvement of women in the work of the “Red Corner” and the planned activities of the Orkhontuul county.

Comrade Ulzii is a member of the Mongolian Revolutionary Youth League (MRYL) and she is on a six month probation period as the candidate member of the Mongolian People’s Revolutionary Party since 1950. Ulzii is one of the outstanding members of our glorious youth. She has been devotedly fulfilling the sacred obligations of the member of the party and MRYL.

As one of the best girls of our Motherland, who distinguished herself with her activism and hard work, comrade Ulzii is nominated as the deputy of the State Great Khural of MPR by the herders and workers of Orhontuul county and Orhon state agricultural farm.  

Comrade Ulzii has devoted her life and work for the development of our Motherland.

Comrade voters!

Let’s vote for comrade Ulzii nominated by the coalition of members and non-members of the Party. "

Awesome Bob. So glad you're still discovering new things!  I liked the youth quota idea, and that she was only around 23 when "elected".  I had a look through my stash and I have # 74 so that one should be researchable. Also have 82... So close

Do I contact the same gentleman who does the herder research? Actually still have two herder badges waiting to hear back about.

Fun stuff!!

Jan

    • Brian, Thanks for initiating this discussion. For me, it’s a combination of the thrill of the chase, the history behind the item, and the aesthetics, although this latter factor may seem a bit strange to some. To illustrate this, the very first thing I collected as a kid in the 1950’s was a Belgian WW1 medal, for service in 1914-18, which is bell shaped, with a very striking profile of a very dignified soldier, wearing an Adrian helmet which bears a laurel wreath. It was the image that
    • Thank you for sharing your story, it was most interesting and greatly appreciated, it makes this blog well worth the time to post. Regards Brian  
    • Hello I started collecting when I found my first Mauser cartridges in a field next to my parents' house next to Armentières. I was eight years old.  Then shrapnel, schrapnell balls, darts... That's how I became a historian. When I was 18, we used to walk through the fields with a metal detector to find our happiness. It was my time in the army as a research-writer in a research centre that made me love the orders of chivalry. I've been collecting them for 24 years now. Christophe
    • Thank you for your most interesting comment. The thrill of the chase didn't interest me in the beginning but over time it started to overshadow the act of simply adding yet another medal or group to the collection. Regards Brian  
    • I know the way I got into collecting is like so many other people; through a sibling. I also know that my love of history is barely unique in a place like this. So I know I have a shared background with many people. A less shared area - perhaps - is that I've always loved the thrill of the chase. When I decide I want, say, a 1914 trio with an original bar, to a cavalry unit, the utter thrill of getting out there and, (a) finding groups that fit the criteria and, (b) comparing them re: ranks, uni
