    Default Late Sub/ship pins, issued or tourist pieces?

    I picked up some of these ship/sub pins in lots when trying to obtain specific pieces. I know there are TONS of these out there but some look a lot like tourist pieces while others share some characteristics with very late issued badges. Two of those below I"m pretty sure are 1970s or 1980s issued submarine pins, but the others I'd like to hear information about.

    First one, Again I think this is a 1970ish issued piece

    I think this is also a 1970ish issued sub-pin

    Here we move off into the unknown. Is this a tourist piece or a late issue piece?

    Here again, a late issue piece or a tourist piece, it shares some charecteristics of finish with that last sub pin, with an odd glassy finish with a gold tint.

    and finally this one is ''victory'' factory marked on both the screw plate and back of the pin (on the left of the pin). Again, does anybody know if these are purely for the tourists or if they are actual issue models?

    Here are some carrier wings, which show some similarity in the screw plate. I believe these wings were actually to be issued at the close of the soviet union.

    Another issue piece, the screw plate is VERY different from the rest.

    I'd take any one of them for my collection.
    Are you using Arapetian for reference? According to him they all (baring the early models) were made by the Pobeda factory soe the LMD or MD plates are wrong. The Pilot's 3rd grade badge has a correct Pobeda plate and is a great badge!

    Pretty sure the screw plates are original to each of them, particularly the carrier wings.
    I don't have the reference, I need to get one.
    Thank you for the reply!

    The first 5 badges are badges for a "Commander of a Submarine" or "Commander of a Ship".
