    Default Soviet CCCP 11 Republics Crest - Hand Made

    I have a CCCP Crest which belonged to my husband's grandfather who was captured by the Soviets and was not executed because he was a civil engineer and they needed to build roads. We don't know exactly where he got this or what it was originally attached to, possibly a flag. We were told that this could be worth over $500 and would like to know if anyone agrees with this.
    It appears to be made of crushed velvet and possibly silk. It was clearly hand made.

    Welcome to the forum!

    It is from a flag. But I think that value maybe too high? I count 16 republics?

    Cheers, Ade.

    Yes, Dom, you are correct. There are 16 Republics listed, the 11 is a typo. The Soviet Union consisted of 16 Republics from 1940 - 1956. Why would you think this has anything to do with a football club? As I stated earlier, my husband's grandfather was captured by the Soviets and forced to work building roads.

    Yeah. There is "Dinamo" badge on the back. This item could be placed on something relating sports, possibly football.

    Wow! That is cool!
    I found this information from the link below.

    The KGB, as well as the Soviet Army, is training its diversionary specialists. The difference, in peacetime, between the two groups is that the Soviet Army contingent always belongs to the Central Army Sports Club while those from the KGB are members of the `Dynamo' Sports Club. In the event of war, the two diversionary networks would operate independently of one another, in the interests of reliability and effectiveness. But a description of the diversionary network of the KGB lies outside our field.
