    Excellent Cook badge, by the NKPS Factory, mid 1940s.

    Excellent Cook badge, by the NKPS Factory, mid 1940s.

    Brass, enamels; 46.1 x 37.9 mm. This is the first type of the Cook badge featuring very tall top ornament consisting of 5 scrolls of varying size. Manufactured by the NKPS Factory.

    In very fine to excellent condition. The red enamel shows nice luster throughout and is well preserved, far better than on an average badge of "WW2 proficiency" series. There are a few small surface flakes near the sickle, most of them nearly unnoticeable to the naked eye, but very little rubbing or other wear. The white band has a few very tiny flakes, scratches and rubbing, but no penetrating chips.

    The details of the wreath and field kitchen are extremely well preserved and crisp; some of the original silver finish is still visible in their recessed areas. The screw post is full length, approx. 10.5 mm, and comes with original pre- 1946 screw plate marked "ShMZ NKPS". Overall, a very attractive piece!
