    Institute of International Relationships (IMO) graduate badge, circa late 1970s-80s.

    Institute of International Relationships (IMO) graduate badge, circa late 1970s-80s.

    Gilded brass, enamels, 3-piece construction; measures 46.3 x 26.3 mm. Raised Leningrad Mint mark to the reverse. Extremely well made, with fine enamel and nicely sculptured details. Pin-back construction, unlike most other Soviet graduation badges.

    Excellent condition. The enamel is perfect; the gilt finish on the palm fronds and state emblem is nice and bright.

    The Institute was an elite establishment whose graduates went on to occupy much coveted positions in the Soviet Diplomatic Corps. Some were privileged children of top Soviet bureaucrats, but many were undercover KGB and GRU officers slated for service abroad. Therefore, this badge may be legitimately considered one of the few true badges of the Soviet espionage services.
