    Default Soviet pins from the 1940īs

    These pins belonged to an older relative who was a member of the local communist party in Sweden during the 1930/40īs. Im not sure exactly when, but he visited Soviet and brought these pins back. My best guess is that it was just after the war.
    Found them awhile back when my grandmother passed away.

    They are civilian and I dont know that much about them. Would be nice if anyone seen anything like them.

    They look like l-R, For a factory worker? Then perhaps some racing team? Then shooting sports? I don't know what they are but they look to be in nice shape though.

    Sorry about that...L-R...Left to right. I messed up with 'I-R'. You might get better results in the Russian section of this forum. There might be someone there that would know but doesn't pay as much attention to this particular (attic & old barn finds) section. Good luck. I know what it's like not to get the answer your looking for.

    Dimas >> Thats a bit strange but makes sense as the two on the right is more plastic and feels a bit "cheaper". The one to the left is more solid. Guess I have to ask around but I have some ideas. Thanks

    The 50s and even 60s era badges were still of higher quality, with most being made from brass or plated steel with enamel.

    Dim is right on, they are 70/80s vintage...
