Badge of an Activist of MOPR (Society to Help Revolutionaries), #3696, 1928-1941.

Silver plated brass, enamels; 27.3 x 24.4 mm. Nice enamel quality. The design incorporates the basic membership badge of the organization with additional wreath and the banner with the word "Activist". Engraved serial number on the reverse.

In excellent condition. The enamel is perfect, completely free of even microscopic flaws - which is extremely uncommon for a Soviet badge of pre-WW2 era. The raised details are likewise pristine; all of original silver finish is fully intact on both sides of the badge. The screw post is full length, approx. 9 mm. The badge comes with a scarce original wing nut factory-marked "Vsekokhudozhnik, Moscow".

Created by Komintern in 1922, MOPR had a purpose of liberating terrorists from jails around the world, and fomenting anti-government activities in foreign countries. Although many Soviet citizens were enrolled in it and had to make "voluntary" monthly contributions, the activist members deserving a special badge were relatively few.
