    Badge of an Activist of MOPR (Society to Help Revolutionaries), #4561, 1928-1941.

    Badge of an Activist of MOPR (Society to Help Revolutionaries), #4561, 1928-1941.

    Silver plated brass, enamels; 27.2 x 24.3 mm. Nice enamel quality. The design incorporates the basic membership badge of the organization with additional wreath and the banner with the word "Activist". Engraved serial number on the reverse.

    In excellent condition. The enamels are perfect with the exception of a tiny surface flake near the edge at the top, unnoticeable to the unaided eye. The raised details are completely intact; some of original silver finish is clearly visible in recessed areas. The screw plating on the reverse is virtually untouched. The screw plate appears to be a period replacement which functions well.

    Created by Komintern in 1922, MOPR had a purpose of liberating terrorists from jails around the world, and fomenting anti-government activities in foreign countries. Although many Soviet citizens were enrolled in it and had to make "voluntary" monthly contributions, the activist members deserving a special badge were relatively few.
