    Default Soviet Guards badge

    Hello all!
    I'd like to know if any of you know much about the Soviet Guards badges.
    I picked this one up in a flea market in Berlin, and would like to know a little bit more about it.
    After some research I learned that my version is post-war, but that there are different eras in which it was manufactured. Also, it looks like someone has attached a pin to the back of the badge, seeing as there's nothing on Guard pin badges online from what I've seen.
    I'd really appreciate if anyone could identify what era mine was made, or share any other information regarding its history.

    I've always been an admirer of Soviet militaria, history and aesthetics, and am excited to delve deeper into collecting.
    Thanks again!

    Circa 60-70's made brass sample with re-added pin, used from the same era Master class badge( normally they are M,1,2 or 3 shields, where the number/letter shown - is a class of a specialist)

    Adjusted by the wearer probably after the epoxy failed and the screw broke off. Or maybe just to make wearing easier as the long screwposts would poke into one's chest as well as twist off-center. The pin did less twisting and less poking as well as leave small holes in one's uniform.
    Nice example of a field-worn badge. I have one with a huge, ugly blob of lead solder and a homemade pin.

    Thank you all for the information!
    That kind of personal modification is not what I expected, very cool.
