    Badge of a Shock Worker of Stalin Campaign for Large Harvest in Chelyabinsk Region, 1933.

    Badge of a Shock Worker of Stalin Campaign for Large Harvest in Chelyabinsk Region, 1933.

    In bronze-plated and gilded steel and enamels. Measures 32.1 mm in height x 35.4 mm in width. Variation with wire attachment of the Stalin's portrait.

    Excellent condition, truly outstanding for this badge. The enamel is practically perfect, showing only microscopic contact marks but no chips, flaking or buffing. Original gilt finish on the portrait and the tractor is completely intact. The details of the writing and wreath are exceptionally crisp. Comes with period screw plate probably original to the badge, maker marked "Khud-Met. Metizsoyuz". A superb piece!

    Stalin Campaigns for increased agricultural production were launched in 1933 all across the arable parts of the Soviet Union. They came as a part of the new Party line in denouncing the "extremes" of total collectivization and aiming to improve the lives of collective farmers. This of course was too little too late for the millions of peasants who got deliberately starved to death in the previous two years of forced collectivization.

    /"Avers 8", p. 87, fig. 492/.
