"Typhoon" submarines badges and medals


Recommended Posts

Dear colleagues,

a lot of soviet and russian badges are available in two grades of manufacturing: hot enamelled heavy metal, and painted light metal. Here is an example:

Enemelled heavy medal:

Painted light metal:

I Wonder if anyone could post some explanation about the coexistence of these two qualities for a same badge.

Thanks a lot in advance!

Different maker...

Different contract...

Bottom one looks like and might be a smaller lapel pin...

Hello François, merci!

thank you for answer! I don't know about the size of the badge on second pic: I don't own it, I copied the pic from an auction website to get an example to illustrate my question. Beside of this, I noticed that many badges are available both in the two grades of manufacturing and in the same size.

Here is the example of K-141 "Kursk" submarine:

My badge, made of gilted brass and hot enamel (very scarce):

The most common badge, made of painted heavy metal:

These two variants are the same size. Manufacturing a hot enamelled badge certainly is more expensive than manufacturing a painted one. Do you think it's the only reason why enamelled variants are more difficult to find? Or do you think that enamelled ones are made for selected people or on specific occasions?..

Salut Phil!

I believe that this is so called "спусковой" (mise à l'eau :)) badge.

Painted one is obviously a modern replica

Here it is on sale http://www.falerist.biz/catalog/78/3910

Another variant (pretty terrible quality) http://www.voentorg.su/item/medali_znaki/kursk_spuskovoj/

les meilleurs vux,

Nick

    • 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.
