    Badge of an Activist of the Society of Militant Atheists, late 1920s-30s Brass, silver plating, enamels.

    Badge of an Activist of the Society of Militant Atheists, late 1920s-30s

    Brass, silver plating, enamels. The pendant measures 46.9 mm in height (incl. eyelet), 27.6 mm in width; overall height with suspension is approx. 57 mm; weighs 8.7 g with suspension not including the screw plate.

    In excellent condition. The red enamel on the pendant fully retains nice original luster and is essentially pristine with the exception of a couple of tiny surface scratches almost unnoticeable to the naked eye. The enamel on the red star has a few microscopic hairlines, likewise practically invisible without magnification, otherwise perfect. The white enamel on the letters is perfect. The silver plating is extremely well-preserved on both sides of the badge. The screw post is over 9 mm long - has not been reduced - and includes original screw plate maker marked "Moscow Artists Cooperative."

    This badge was the highest award of the Society of Militant Atheists, and it is far more scarce than the membership badges of the organization. It is especially hard to find one in condition as good as our example. This is a truly outstanding and interesting piece!
