    Voroshilov Horseman badge, variation with thin screw post, 1936-1941.

    Voroshilov Horseman badge, variation with thin screw post, 1936-1941.

    In silver-plated brass and enamels. Massive badge measuring 39.2 mm in height, 38.7 mm in width. Nice quality, impressive piece. The white horseshoe has inscription "OSOAVIAKhIM USSR" - the name of the paramilitary organization that awarded the badge. Note the large star in royal blue - a traditional color of the cavalry - rather than red. The rider is holding a red flag with writing "Voroshilov Horseman". Features a relatively thin screw post, approx. 2.8 mm in diameter (near its base).

    In very fine to excellent condition. There are small flakes and contact marks to the blue star, mostly on its upper right arm, but it still retains some of its luster. The red enamel on the banner and white enamel on the horseshoe are almost perfect having just minimal rubbing and some tiny contact marks. The horse and rider show light surface wear only, their details are very nicely defined. Traces of original silver finish are visible in recessed areas of the obverse. The screw post is original and full length, over 11 mm long, and is slightly bent but fully functional. Its upper part has been rethreaded to accommodate a post-war mint marked screw plate, but the lower part retains its original threads and thickness.

    Established in 1936, this badge was issued by the OSOAVIAKHIM almost exclusively to military men. The production stopped at the beginning of the Patriotic War.

    /"Avers 8", p. 318, fig. 1545/
