    In my opinion, and based on your images, a modern reproduction of a Red Army (PKKA) "Sniper" (Cнайпер) badge. Awarded before World War 2, 1938, I believe. If original would fetch $300 to $500 in today's market. Here is an original, not from my collection, with a pin attachment/replacement of the original screw-post, and yes, they are quite scarce.

    Here it's always a good possibility, but I've noticed people who have went to Russia at some point and bought fake badges or awards, then sold them later on without knowing what the items are.

    I also think it's a modern reproduction; the details and the reverse seem to indicate that.
