    Badge to a Builder of the Lenin Subway (in Leningrad), 1955.

    Badge to a Builder of the Lenin Subway (in Leningrad), 1955.

    Brass, enamels, measures 25.6 mm wide. Fine quality badge of pin back construction, with very pronounced counter-relief to the reverse. Shows two workers raising in a subway tunnel raising a red flag with blue letter "M" (for Metro) and hammer & sickle emblem. Writing along the edge is "V. I. Lenin Metro". Stamped writing at the bottom plaque "Leningrad, 1955". It is interesting to note the absence of any usual references to Stalin, who had been dead by then but not yet denounced.

    In outstanding, excellent condition. The enamel and details are perfect. There is only minimal tarnish to the silver finish on the background and gilt finish on the wreath. The base of the pin has inscribed letters ИВА ("IVA"), probably the initials of the original owner.
