    Default Excellent Machine Gunners badge

    This one dates from the mid to late 1950's.

    I have a wartime example in my collection which I have shown on the forum in the past.

    This badge can be found in about 24 variations! This one is a type 23 made by the famous "Victory" factory in Moscow.

    Cheers, Ade.
