Leningrad Highest Merchant Fleet Engineering School, graduate badge, Type 4, circa mid to late 1960s.
Brass, enamels; 46.3 x 25.6 mm. This version features superimposed silver-plated ship and plaque with school's name.
In excellent condition. The enamel shows only minimal wear, no flaking or chips. Beautifully preserved silver finish and black paint highlights. The screw plate marked "Artistic Fund Workshop" is of the period and probably original to the badge.
