    Hi,

    I must confess that I don't know anything about Soviet/Imperial Russia badges, and am wondering if you can tell me anything about this badge other than it appears to be the Star to Order of St. Alexander Nevsky. I haven't seen this version of the award. I assume that this was awarded during Soviet times, is this correct?



    Thanks

    Yeah, copy of an Imperial award. Look for a hammer and sickle, a red star or a "CCCP" as these always identify a Soviet award.
