    Looks pretty good to me, the tassles on the banner are the difference between wartime and post war patterns but I'm sure Ade will be along soon and he is I think the main man here for WWII Soviet stuff.

    Regards

    I can only only echo Dom's comment. This one will date from the late 1940's/early 1950's.

    Cheers, Ade.

    D'oh!

    Of course it is, I got the tassle thing the wrong way round!

    I didn't realise how long it was since I had paid attention to the Soviet stuff in my collection. I must get back up to speed. Sorry!!

    Can anyone tell me, how can I distinguish war from post war badges? TY

    I have read in a book, that the flag has fringes since 1950.

    The fringe is indeed a rough guide, and combine this with the banner surface pattern. Having said that I still find this a very attractive early post war badge.

    What is in the original post looks like perhaps type Hayrapetyan 12.3

    You can see some of the transitions in different models, here is a Hayrapetyan 11.1, notice fringe but at the same time it has a dimpled banner surface (not my picture but I do have one of these in my collection if someone wants more detailed shots).
