    Trade Union of Publishing Industry Workers, membership badge, Type 2, circa late 1920s.

    Trade Union of Publishing Industry Workers, membership badge, Type 2, circa late 1920s.

    In bronze plated magnetic steel and enamels; 32.0 x 24.1 mm. Extremely well made, with beautifully executed details. This interesting early design combines the details of a printing press and an open book with raging flames on the background. The latter probably meant to represent the fire of communist revolution but may also be interpreted as the bonfire of politically incorrect books (which always follows events of this nature).

    In excellent condition. The enamel is perfect. The raised details are extremely crisp and show practically no wear. Comes with original bronze-plated steel screw plate marked with the name and address of the manufacturer "Pr.Pr. MGU [Moscow State University], 14 Gertsen Street". The screw post is full length, approx. 10 mm.

    /"Avers 8", p. 272, fig. 1325b (please note that only a photo of the silver badge 1325a is shown in the book)/.
