    Default SOVIET BADGE "Distinguished MACHINE-GUNNER" WW2

    Here the first of many??..I have found this E-bay it's going for 18 pounds from the States....I like the badge design for the Machine Gunner..I was wonder if I could bother anybody over the badge being real,old,new, & if that is too cheap or too pricey.. Sorry for so many questions?? But I could be onto something big here!!!! Cheers Terry.Click image for larger version.

    Thick lettering to the wording.

    On these copies, the nut is similar to real ones also found on guards badges. There are more than one style of fakes of these so caution is warranted.

    That nut is made by the People's Commissariat of Communication Lines.

    NKPS made railway badges pre war.

    Are these style nuts actually found on the 'excellent' series on original correct badges?

    Post two in his thread suggests yes...
    Excellent Machine Gunners badge
