The silver finish is exceptionally well-preserved, practically pristine having none of the usual wear to the raised points of the artwork. The finish on the reverse is likewise perfect. Includes original screw plate with the Pobeda Factory logo. The screw post is full length, approx. 11.5 mm.

This version of the badge was issued after the Border Guards were transferred to the control of KGB in 1957 and until the change in the design of the badge in 1964.
