    Naval Air Force School graduate badge, 1944 type, 1944-1954.

    Naval Air Force School graduate badge, 1944 type, 1944-1954.

    Brass, nickel plating, enamels. Measures 30.1 mm in height, 82.0 mm in width.

    In very fine condition, far better than the average for this badge. There is a small chip to the red star in its upper right segment to the right of the sickle, some hairlines in the same area, and surface rubbing throughout. Most of the red enamel is still intact however, and the damage is not particularly glaring. The azure enamel on the center medallion is well preserved overall having only a couple of tiny chips at approximately 3 o'clock - barely noticeable without a magnifying glass. The details of the wings, anchor and swords are beautifully preserved and crisp. Most of the original nickel plating on the wings is still present. The screw post is full length, about 9.5 mm. Includes original screw plate marked "Moscow Artists Cooperative". Overall, a very attractive example of the scarce WW2 naval pilot's wings.

    /See Borisov, "Badges of the Soviet Armed Forces...", fig. 316; B. Airapetyan, "Breast Badges of the Red Army, 1941-1945" p. 77, fig. 3/.
