Silver gilt, enamels; 47.5 x 26.9 mm. Riveted two-piece
construction, beautiful quality. The USSR state emblem is of
pre-1948 style, with 11 scrolls representing the number of
republics in the Soviet Union.
In very fine to excellent condition. The enamel is nicely
preserved overall having only a few thin surface flakes to
the white border that are nearly unnoticeable to the naked
eye. The blue enamel is perfect. Both blue and white enamels
retain beautiful luster. The USSR state emblem is
practically pristine, with crisp details and much of its
original gilt still intact. The rivets are tight, and the
reverse shows nice toning to silver. Includes original screw
plate marked "Monetnyi Dvor". The screw post is full length,
well over 12 mm.
