    Badge of an Honored Employee of Mongolian State Security, #943, circa 1940s-50s.

    Badge of an Honored Employee of Mongolian State Security, #943, circa 1940s-50s.

    Silver, enamels, hallmarked and numbered; measures 44.4 x 26.1 mm; weighs 20.9 grams without the wing nut. Manufactured in Moscow circa 1940-41, just before the Patriotic War, this badge is of outstanding quality and very intricate design. General outline of a shield is formed by two red banners on the sides, silver sunburst at the top, and green field at the bottom. In the center is multicolored Mongolian state emblem of 1940 type depicting charging horseman, animal heads, and Uighur writing at the bottom. Under the emblem is white ribbon with Cyrillic abbreviation for state security of Mongolia. Vertical sword goes under the center part, its grip showing at the top and tip of the blade at the very bottom of the badge. Reverse shows Soviet sterling silver hallmark "916", assay mark and Cyrillic maker mark МТХ ("MTKh") of the Moscow Cooperative of Artists.

    In outstanding, excellent condition. The enamel is exceptionally well-preserved, almost pristine. There are only a few of microscopic contact marks to the banner, no wear visible to the naked eye. The enamel is completely free of flaking or rubbing and retains magnificent luster throughout. Unlike most badges of this type, raised details of the center medallion are perfect and extremely crisp, free of any wear.

    The screw post measures nearly 11.5 mm long, has not been shortened. Comes with original wing nut showing the logo of the Moscow Artists Cooperative and an additional MTX hallmark matching the one the reverse of the badge. The threads are in great shape, and the screw plate stays firmly on the screw post when attached.
