    Badge for Excellence in Peoples Education of Latvia, Type 1, 1944-46.

    Badge for Excellence in Peoples Education of Latvia, Type 1, 1944-46.

    In silver or silver-plated brass; gold plating and enamels; 50.5 x 30.4 mm. Extremely elegant and beautiful badge, with superimposed gilded wreath, plaque and book, and superb enamelwork. The diamond-shaped base appears to be made in solid silver even though "Avers 8" describes this version of the badge as all brass. Note the peculiar wire loop attachment (to hold with a pin) unique to the first version of the badge.

    In outstanding, excellent condition. The enamel is practically perfect with only minimal surface wear, free of chips, scratches or flaking (couple of tiny unfilled areas in the white sunburst are manufacturing flaws, not losses due to damage). Details are extremely well preserved and crisp. The original gold plating is entirely intact and bright. Nice, even patina to silver parts. A superb piece!

    /"Avers 8", p. 208, fig. 1052 /
