Lvov Highest Military Political School (LVVPU), Naval Department, commemorative badge, circa 1970s.
Brass, enamels; 35.7 x 27.2 mm. Massive 3-piece construction (the star at the top and the naval flag with the anchor arms are two separate, superimposed parts).
Very fine condition. There is a tiny repair between the top and upper left arms of the star in the flag; the enamel shows only minor wear and a couple of microscopic flakes otherwise. The screw plate is of the period but may or may not be original to the badge.
Known by its Russian abbreviation "ЛВВПУ", this school prepared political and propaganda cadres for various branches of the Soviet military. Given the exclusive status of its graduate and possible political career, it was highly competitive.
