    Czechoslovakia-Badges for Exemplary Sodiers 1951-1962

    Recommended Posts

    I went through  the division ,but I did notice this topis.Probably I did not see properly.Despite of the fact I think the topic about the Czechoslovak military badges deserves the position in GMIC.In my opinion the badges belong among the nicest military badges,still are looked for many collectors in Czech and Slovakia.

    Exemplary soldiers and non-commissioned officers were awarded .The bagdes were made of bronze,dimension 4,6cm X 5,1cm.For wearing the base and matrix were used-collectors try to get complete badges.Bases were both-alluminium or brass.It is nice.The description-the five-pointed emaled star put on the wreath from limb leaves,in the middle walkig lion .In the lower part is the speciality of army.21 specialities of army were issued.I do not have photos all the badges,because during past years I sold nearly 30 bagdes.So first I will show some left.

    1.An exemplary driver  sign truck

    I had to borrow,or exactly to steal the photos of certificates-dokuments,simply I took mine away.A green certificate was for frontier guards, a red one for other specialities of army.

    5.An exemplary medic soldier.It belongs to middle expensive bagdes.

    6.An exemplary communication soldier.

    Exemplary Railwayman

    One of the rarest and more exensive.The soldiers so called PTP military units were awarded.PTP-Pracovno-technické prapory-Work-technical batallions were the units in army that work in heavy industry-building roads,rock mines...etc.This one in the picture is with a low number.
