Badge for Excellence in Peoples Education of Ukraine, Type 1, 1944-46, with original issue case.
Silver-plated brass, enamels; 39.9 mm x 32.7 mm, massive construction. The first, "Narkomat" type of the Peoples Education badge featuring the early version of the Ukrainian spelling of the word "People's" (with an additional soft sign "ь").
In outstanding, excellent condition. The enamel is perfect (somewhat uneven surface along the edge of the white shield is manufacturing flaw, not flaking). Silver plating and details of the scrolls are intact. Includes original washer and screw plate marked "ShMZ. NKPS". The cardboard issue box is likewise in excellent condition, shows only very light wear to the exterior. An all-in-all excellent piece!
