    Official 30th Anniversary of Komsomol badge, 1949.

    Official 30th Anniversary of Komsomol badge, 1949.

    29mm x 22mm. Brass, enamels. Shows Stalin and Lenin profiles and the numeral "XXX". Stamped maker mark to the reverse (Cyrillic letter for "L"). Laurel leaves on either side of the flag.

    Very Fine to Excellent Condition. The portraits of Lenin and Stalin and much of the reverse of the badge still show some of the original gilding. While there is no enamel damage, the chemical composition of the red enamel has caused the "Komsomol" lettering and the outer edges of the dual portrait to darken. One small dot of white appears in the lower left corner of the red enamel flag. Under magnification, the white enamel behind the Roman numerals can be seen to have a number of dark flecks in it - a fairly common occurrence whenever that specific color was used on even higher quality mass produced badges like this.

    There are two major variants of this badge; one with white enamel and one with blue.
