Badge in Commemoration of the 10th Anniversary of the Taymyr Geophysical Expedition, 1971.
Aluminum, paint. Interesting design incorporating map of the Taymyr Peninsula with the settlements of Dudinka and Khatanga; the inscription on the red flags refer to Lenin's Centenary and 50th Anniversary of the October Revolution that took place during the 1961-71 period. The pendant is 36.5 mm tall incl. eyelet x 27.9 mm wide. The reverse of the suspension shows logo of an unknown Soviet factory. The expedition was a continuous effort aimed primarily at discovery of natural gas (and later, oil) deposits in the far north of Krasnoyarsk Territory. The badge was probably issued exclusively to participants of the effort.
