    All-Union Society of the Friends of Museums of the Revolution, membership badge, mid to late 1930s.

    All-Union Society of the Friends of Museums of the Revolution, membership badge, mid to late 1930s.

    In brass plated and silver plated magnetic steel and enamels; 25.2 mm tall at the flagpole, 30.8 mm wide (measured along the wide side of the parallelogram). Shows portraits of the communist "deities": Marx, Engels, Lenin and Stalin. Note that Stalin looks relatively young, as characteristic of his pre-WW2 images.

    In excellent condition, outstanding for this early badge. The enamel is essentially perfect and shows beautiful luster; there are just a few microscopic contact marks completely unnoticeable to the unaided eye. The details of the portraits are well-defined showing only modest wear. Traces of the original silver finish are present in the recessed areas of the portraits, while the silver finish on the reverse is practically pristine. The original copper screw post is full length, approx. 9.5 mm. The screw plate is a replacement dating to 1950s, but it fits the screw post perfectly.

    /"Avers 8", p. 373, fig. 1829; see also "Badges of Volunteer Societies of the USSR" p. 338, fig. 26.1/
