Excellent Parachutist badge, 1968 type, early version, circa late 1960s.
Brass, enamels; 50.9 mm tall (not including the pendant) x 22.5 mm wide. Features early style airplane and larger, more detailed image of the paratrooper (as compared with the later issues). Note also the wider space between the right and left suspension lines. There is early-style hexagon logo of the Pobeda Factory on the reverse in the upper left. The pendant is reversible, for making an additional 3 or 4 jumps.
In excellent condition. The enamel is perfect. Nice even patina to the brass. The screw post is full length, nearly 12 mm. Comes with original early brass screw plate marked "Pobeda Factory, Moscow".
