Nizhnedenstrovskiy Border Guard Unit, Western Border Guard District, veteran's badge, circa 1980s.
Aluminum, paint, lacquer, measures 64.0 mm in height, 32.0 mm in width. The quality is quite high for a late issue badge and very much resembles badges made by the Moscow Mint, although there is no maker mark that would confirm a mint manufacture. A gilt version of the same badge is known to exist. In excellent condition.
