    MID (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) Diplomatic Corps Academy, graduate badge, 1974-1991.

    MID (Ministry of Foreign Affairs) Diplomatic Corps Academy, graduate badge, 1974-1991.

    Gilded brass, enamel; 34.1 x 24.5 mm. Riveted 3-piece construction: the state emblem and the palm fronds are separate, superimposed parts. Magnificent quality, showing nice rippling effect under the enamel, similar to badges of Supreme Soviet members and delegates of Communist Party congresses. The reverse shows late style, raised circular mint mark of the Moscow Mint.

    In excellent condition. The enamel is perfect and shows beautiful luster. The gilt finish is likewise perfectly preserved and bright.

    This badge is representative of the crème de la crème of the Soviet elite. Established in 1974, the Diplomatic Corps Academy had only a few coveted spots, usually reserved for the offspring of top party functionaries. Some of the graduates were KGB and GRU agents, hand-picked for espionage assignments in the western countries.

    /"Avers 8", p. 567, fig. 2849/.
