    Excellent Rifleman badge, circa late 1940s - early 50s.

    Excellent Rifleman badge, circa late 1940s - early 50s.

    Brass, enamels; measures 46.0 mm x 36.3 mm. This is a relatively scarce, early Pobeda Factory variation featuring five scrolls in the top ornament, with the central scroll fully separating the side scrolls (its bottom part widens at the base and is almost identical to the top part). Star pattern under red enamel in the center medallion and dash pattern in the lower portion. The red enamel is of lighter shade than on more common issues.

    In very fine to excellent condition. The red enamel is has only a few tiny contact marks, otherwise perfect and shows beautiful luster. The white band has minor amount of rubbing and a single tiny, nearly unnoticeable chip at the outer edge at 5 o'clock. The details of the rifles and wreath are perfect and crisp. The fragile grey finish on the edge of the shield is nearly pristine. The gilt finish extremely well-preserved on both sides of the badge. The screw post is full length, approx. 11.5 mm (measured from the reverse of the badge rather than screw post base) and includes original screw plate marked "Pobeda Factory, Moscow".

    /"Breast Badges of the Red Army, 1941-1945", p. 136, fig. 7/.
