Hi David

I'm not sure what help you need.  Not my area at all but if you're looking for an ID, the hammer and sickle obviously say 'Communist' and what I take to be a rising sun at the bottom should be a clue as well.  Chinese?  My hunch, and that's all it is, is Asia rather than Europe.

That said, it is very crudely made, so it may be a copy of something rather than an original, but I don't know.  Can we see the back as well?  Maybe that will give somebody a clue.  Thanks.

Apologies for the delay in responding, the badge is a russian police officers issued between 1937/39 and an original piece.

Thank you and my apologies again. 

Regards David

When you say "badge" are you referring to cap badge?  The prongs on the back would indicate that sort of use to me.  We still don't know what kind of help you are asking for.  You say its original so that can not be the question.  What exactly are your questions about this "badge"?

Just because I've found out what it is and been able to confirm its originality I always appreciate the thoughts and comments of you more experienced members on my items. I never take things at first sight hence joining a forum like this, foreign items although not my area have come my way in the 50 years i've collected and I thought sharing with other members was a good thing.

    • Lapsang Souchong, when i first tasted this I thought it was like stale cigarette ends...it's an acquired taste for sure.  
    • 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
