Excellent RKKA Serviceman badge, #3561, circa 1939-40 issue.

Early version featuring flat revers with a slight counter-relief at the bottom and a serial number engraved in very characteristic angular font. Note the extremely low serial number: this badge is clearly among the first issued immediately after the introduction of this Red Army enlisted man's award in 1939.

In excellent condition, outstanding for any Soviet military badge of early WW2 / pre-Patriotic War vintage. There are a couple of microscopic hairlines the red enamel on the star, but they are unnoticeable without magnification. The enamel is perfect otherwise, free of even tiny chips or flakes.

The details of the obverse are well-preserved and crisp showing only very minimal wear to the raised points. Very attractive even toning to the brass throughout, no blemishes or oxidation spots. The screw post is approx. 8 mm in length, probably reduced by couple of mm for convenience as was customary but more than long enough for proper functionality. The wing nut maker marked "KhEO DSO Motor" is original to the badge and fits it perfectly.
