It looks like in 1940 regulation for these badges was changed.

Two classes of this late badges are known.

Both classes have no insciption on reverse and have simplified color schemes: plain copper and plain silver.

Let`s take a look at them.

Later badges

"Copper badge"

Nice example

Приветствую, Валерий.

Они время от времени проходят на eBay. 

Мониторьте его и значок от вас не уйдёт ;) 

Best,

Nick
