Badges of Distinction of the Economic Agencies of the USSR, Volume 2, A Zak, V Alekseev, Ekaterinburg, 2010, Russian text, 368 pages, hardcover; part of the immensely popular "Collector's Library" series.
6 ¾" x 9 ¾" x 7/8". Volume 2 of a 2-part series; the first volume dealt with the earlier badges of Soviet Narkomats as well as the badges issued by various ministries in the Soviet Republics. This volume covers badges issued by All-Union ministries, economic committees, industrial agencies, etc., starting from 1946 all the way through to 1991. Much better organized and far easier to navigate than Volume 1. Although there is some overlap between the two books, the vast majority of badges or individual variations covered here were not shown in the first volume - and certainly not in any other previously published literature on Soviet awards! For most badges, the name of the manufacturer is given along with the quantity that were issued.
There is a convenient blue key for most badges designating the current market price in Russia, with price categories ranging from 1 (200 to 3000 rubles) to 5 (over 50000 rubles).
