Spartakiada of the Nations of the USSR, 1956, Relay Race Participant's Badge.
In brass and enamels. Measures 42.9 mm x 33.7 mm; weighs 18.5 g. Riveted two-piece construction.
In excellent condition. The enamel is perfect and shows beautiful luster; there are only a couple of microscopic contact marks invisible to the naked eye, no flaking or other wear. Nicely detailed center medallion; the silver plating is so perfect that it creates an illusion that medallion is made of solid silver. The pin attachment and catch are slightly bent but sound and fully functional.
