Winner of Socialist Competition badge, Type 1, #4716, circa 1960s.
Brass, gilt, silver plating, enamels, nice solid quality throughout. The medallion is 36.2 mm tall, 32.0 mm wide. Stamped serial number to the reverse.
In outstanding, excellent condition, far better than most contemporary Mongolian badges. The enamel is essentially perfect, with only a few tiny scuffs or contact marks on the suspension and practically no wear on the medallion. The silver and gold finishes are exceptionally well preserved on both the obverse and reverse. The screw post is full length, nearly 11 mm long, and comes with original screw plate marked "Ulan Bator Artists Cooperative".
Overall, an impossible to upgrade piece!
