"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

    • I like my tea strong enough for my spoon to stand up in. My father got me into it. When my father was at RAF Dum Dum 1943-47 most of his fellow officers drank ice cold drinks to mitigate  the heat, his Sikh batman warned him against it and said that strong hot tea would cool him down, most certainly did. So years later in the UK when everybody else was drinking iced drinks on a baking day the wood family was inbibing copious quantities of hot strong brews of Assam's finest. P
    • Hi ccj, Thanks for your comments. Funny how, for me at least, coffee has become a habit more than a conscience choice. It's the old, "Well if you having one (coffee) pour me as well". When I get together with my son-in-law, a former Brit, it's tea all the way. Thanks again. Regards Brian  
    • I live and grew up in the south (USA) and the drink of choice 7 days a week was cold sweet tea. I was unaware Lipton was British because that’s what most southern use for brewing tea. When I joined the army I learned most people in the north and western parts of the USA drank unsweetened tea and that was perplexing to my young brain. Now days I can’t stand sweet iced tea but it’s still the most common drink in the south, but, you can get unsweetened ice tea in the south. Im familiar with ho
    • I drink tea every day (Chinese tea), I used to buy Sri Lankan black tea at the fair before, it was great! I have been reluctant to drink them all. . The tea I’m talking about is just brewing water, not adding other substancesI
    • Thanks for your reply Patrick, just in case some might not know what the Belgian WW1 Medal you were referencing looks like I have included one here. I understand that the small crown on the ribbon denoted the recipient was a volunteer.
