    Central Executive Committee of the Ukraine membership badge, #173, circa 1927-1931, with related document to a delegate of the XII Convocation of the Ukrainian TsIK (probably issued to a different person).

    Central Executive Committee of the Ukraine membership badge, #173, circa 1927-1931, with related document to a delegate of the XII Convocation of the Ukrainian TsIK (probably issued to a different person).

    Sterling silver, enamel; measures 33.7 mm width, 21.0 mm in height; weighs 8.5 g without screw plate. Shows Ukrainian abbreviation for "Ukrainian SSR" and "TsIK" (Central Executive Committee). The reverse shows silver hallmark "916" with the Greek character Delta next to the worker's head, designation of the Moscow assay inspection. Also shows Cyrillic maker mark "KhEM" (ХЭМ) and engraved serial number "173". The enamel and overall workmanship are of superb quality. Judging by the hallmarks and the characteristics of the die, the badge was probably issued between 1927 and 1931 (to a delegate of the 10th, 11th or 12th Convocation of the All-Ukrainian TsIK).

    The badge is in very fine to excellent condition. The enamel has a single scratch above the letter "Ц" (Ts) which is not very noticeable or detracting. The enamel is pristine otherwise and retains all of its exquisite translucency and luster. Beautiful, even toning to the reverse. The screw post is approx. 9 mm in length, probably never reduced. Comes with original silver wing nut which shows round silver hallmark and maker mark "KhEM"; note the rich, untouched patina to the wing nut perfectly matching that on the reverse of the badge.

    This is an absolutely superb piece, worthy of even the most sophisticated collection of early Soviet awards.

    The document is an ID of a delegate of XII Convocation of the All-Ukrainian TsIK. Shows serial number of the certificate #423 which in our opinion, does not correspond with the serial number of the badge. Note that although the document is correct for the badge above, we make no claim that the two are in fact to the same person.

    The document is in fair condition. The internal pages and lining have deteriorated and are partly missing due to heavy use and apparent exposure to moisture. The hand-written name of the recipient and the ink stamp are present but completely illegible. The printed serial number of the certificate is completely intact and clear. The hand signature of the Secretary of the Presidium is clearly visible and mostly legible, only last letter or two are missing due clipped corner of the page; the last name appears to be "Vasilenko".

    The leather cover is in far better condition despite the heavy wear to the edges. The front cover is particularly well preserved, still supple and retains original color. The impressed writing "Member of VUTsVK, XII" as well as the early state emblem of the Soviet Ukraine are well defined.

    /See A. Mekhonoshin, "Breast Badges of the Highest Offices of Government, 1917-1991", fig. 22.1.2, also "Avers 8" , p. 545, fig. 2687/.
