Looks like школы прапорщиков, комплектовавшейся из студентов высших учебных заведений. But the N2 crest ist is much simpler on yours. So I would think it's not good. But maybe some knows more?

This type of badge, or this specific badge?

All pictures I've found on the web of this specific badge had a bigger green enamel shield.

There are numerous varieties of ensigns badges, as to hallmarks, is it definitely silver or is it silvered metal, quite frequently found on late Imperial badges and therefore not hallmarked. I would not dismiss the badge out of hand.

This is of course Praporshchik School Badge.

Made in bronze (?) or is it patinated silver (?)

Such badges were made in silver (marked), silver (unmarked) and bronze.

This one was made before 1917 and certainly before provisional government times (crowns ;)).

The real question to what praporshchik school this badge belong to ...

The key for identification is this shield ...

Obviously it is 2nd H School (although usually it is 2 not II)

By what for this H stands for?


Nikolayevskoe (very unlikely ...)?

Go figure...

Another scenario H II stands for Nicholas II.

But why then such strange form of H and not a standart monogram of Nicholas II?

Well, there were 144 (!!!) schools ;)

    • 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.
