Award Badge of Excellent Shock-Worker of the Chollima Movement, brass version, circa 1960s.
In brass and high quality "hot baked" enamels; the medallion measures 35.4 mm in height (incl. eyelet), 30.5 mm in width. The obverse features mythical horse Chollima (or Chkhollima). This version of the badge features counter-relief of the wreath on the reverse of the center medallion and raised inscription on the reverse of the suspension device.
In excellent condition. The enamel is perfect, free of noticeable wear. The raised details including the Chollima horseman are extremely well-preserved and crisp. Attractive even bronze toning throughout, with some of the original mint luster visible in recessed areas, especially on the reverse. The pin attachment is intact. A very uncommon and attractive early piece.
