Shows steam engine locomotive under red flag with "Stalin" written on the front, and with stylized sickle and hammer emblem. This is a 1950's version of the badge featuring bronze finish on locomotive, bight nickel finish on the cogwheel, relatively thin screw post (approx. 3.5 mm in diameter) and blue enamel in the lettering around the sickle. Excellent quality.

In outstanding, excellent condition. The enamel shows beautiful luster and is completely free of the usual chips, flaking, or rubbing. There are only a few microscopic contact marks that are completely unnoticeable to the naked eye. The raised details of the locomotive are pristine and exceptionally crisp. The bronze finish is perfect, and so is the nickel finish on the cogwheel and reverse of the badge. The screw post is full length, almost 12.5-mm long. Includes original, highly domed late-style screw plate maker marked "ShMZ MPS" ("Mechanical Stamping Factory, Ministry of Railroad Transportation"). Overall, this is an uncommonly nice example of a relatively common badge.
