    Excellence in the Air Force badge, "Classic Flat" version, 1950s issue.

    Excellence in the Air Force badge, "Classic Flat" version, 1950s issue.

    Brass, enamels; 45.7 x 36.5 mm. Late type, described as "Classic Flat" in the "Breast Badges of the Red Army, 1941- 1945"

    In very fine to excellent condition. The red enamel has a few tiny, barely noticeable flakes near the hammer and a single internal hairline fracture that resulted in a dark line from the hammer to the tip of the sickle. This is not very noticeable, and red enamel retains nice overall appearance and luster. There are a couple of microscopic flakes to the white band - unnoticeable to the naked eye - and some tiny contact marks. The turquoise enamel is essentially perfect. The original gilt finish on the wreath and reverse of the badge is nicely preserved, with attractive toning to the raised parts. The nickel silver finish on the wings of the Air Force emblem is perfect. The screw post is full length, approx. 12 mm, and includes original Pobeda factory screw plate.

    Established in 1950, the Excellence in the Air Force was the last award of the proficiency badges series which started in 1942. /Airapetyan, "Breast Badges of the Red Army, 1941-1945" p. 139, fig. 3/
