Excellent in the Air Force badge, screw back version, circa
Aluminum, paint, 41.3 mm x 31.0 mm. Features screw back
attachment, unlike the AF proficiency badges from the 70s-80s.
Early style logo of the Pobeda Factory to the reverse.
Excellent condition. Comes with original screw plate marked
"Pobeda Factory, Moscow."
This version of the badge was produced only once in a single
series by Pobeda Factory. Its screw back attachment and
comparatively nice quality makes it different from all the
aluminum badges manufactured in the later years. This
variation is quite scarce compared even with the earlier
badges in brass and enamels.
