60th Anniversary of KGB, commemorative badge, 1977 issue.

Aluminum, paint, lacquer, 43.0 x 21.4 mm. The reverse shows raised stylized letters ЛЭ ("LE"), the late style logo of the Lenemalyer Factory in Leningrad. In excellent condition.

Despite its relatively humble appearance, this is definitely an official badge, not a souvenir. Commemorative badges of this type were awarded to various low ranking employees within KGB and its many axillaries - as opposed to the higher ranking badges in brass awarded exclusively to active duty KGB officers. Some of the aluminum badges were probably also given to KGB retirees.
