50th Anniversary of Mongolian Border Guard Troops, commemorative award badge, 1984.
In brass and enamel paint; 40.1 x 24.2 mm. This piece is of much better quality than most other contemporary Mongolian badges that were usually made in aluminum and paint.
In outstanding, excellent condition. The paint is perfectly preserved showing none of the usual scuffs. The gilt finish is likewise perfect and bright on both sides of the badge. All-in- all a superb example!
This relatively uncommon award is not shown in the otherwise very comprehensive reference guide on Mongolian awards by Dr. A. Battushig.
