    The first, marked "1" is an original variant 9 from second half of the sixties. The second, marked "2" is what I believe a variant 6 from 1960.
    These have absolutely no value so these won't be faked.

    Hahaha, I wouldn't say NO value but I know what you mean. They don't really challenge such things as The Order of Victory in that way

    I have several of these which I obtained from Soviet soldiers in GSFG during the '80s.

    The early ones like these are plated brass and real enamel whilst the later types are anodised aluminium and paint.

    Yes the monetary value is low but they are certainly pieces that belong in any collection of Soviet insignia. Personally I think it is reassuring to find items for your collection that are just not "sexy" enough for the fakers!

    I have here a Russian catalogue of Soviet badges and their values, prices in US $. The above ones go for $ 0,50 - $ 2. On Ebay I come by these a lot as well and they never go for more than $ 3-4. So very, very low value. Indeed more than no value
    But I agree, it is very nice that there are still items out there not being faked!
