    Shock Worker of Stalin Labor Campaign badge, Type 1, #53427, mid to late 1930s.

    Shock Worker of Stalin Labor Campaign badge, Type 1, #53427, mid to late 1930s.

    Brass, silver plating, enamels; 30 mm height, 32.5 mm width (measured between the extending points of the upper banners). First version of the Stalin Labor Campaign award for railway employees. Superb quality. Features riveted 3- piece construction (back plate with banners, superimposed hexagon nut with black lettering, and superimposed engine locomotive with the hammer and stylized sickle forming the round opening). Note the absence of the flagpole finial on the banner. Stamped serial number is in smaller font than on the later, 2-piece versions of the badge.

    In very fine overall condition. The enamel on the center star has been replaced. The enamel elsewhere on the badge is completely intact; note beautiful luster to enamel on the banners. Raised details of the locomotive are perfect, including the clearly visible raised inscription "Stalin" on the front. Most of the original silver plating on the obverse is still present. Rivets on the reverse are slightly loose but the assembly is reliable. The mint marked screw plate is of the later vintage than the badge but is functioning perfectly. /see "Breast Badges ...Era of Labor Victories, 1920-1940" p. 80 fig. 99, also "Avers 8" p. 149, fig. 741.a/
