Excellent MOOP Policeman badge, 1962-1970.
In aluminum and paint ("cold enamels"); 38.6 x 29.6 mm. An interesting feature of this badge is its old version of the Soviet state emblem, despite the 1955 change from the 16 to 15 republic version (as represented by the scrolls of the ribbon holding the wheat).
Excellent condition. The paint is perfect, without chips or significant wear. There is only minimal wear to the finish on the raised points of the USSR national emblem; its details are nicely preserved and crisp. The screw post is full length, approx. 11 mm, and includes original Pobeda Factory screw plate.
The badge was issued for a brief period after 1962 when the MVD was known as MOOP (Ministry for Protection of Public Order) and until the introduction of the new MVD Excellent Policeman award in 1970.
