MVD / Police Officer Qualification Badge, 1st class, 1972-74.

In aluminum, approx. 69.5 mm wide. Raised maker mark to the reverse. Excellent condition. (Please note, our photos show an example; if you order, we will select an identical badge in the same condition from our available inventory).

This badge was established in 1972 specifically as Police / MVD qualification award for officers (similar to the Armed Forces combined proficiency badge). It was reportedly discontinued just two years later, in 1974.
