    Set of two People's Deputy of the USSR badges, with original fitted issue / presentation box, 1989 issue.

    Set of two People's Deputy of the USSR badges, with original fitted issue / presentation box, 1989 issue.

    The set consists of two badges in gold-plated silver and enamels, both of trademark, fabulous quality associated with the Soviet decorations issued to the political elite. Moscow mint mark "MMD" on the reverses of both. One of the badges is pin back construction, provided for convenience to wear on non-military clothing; the other is a screw back, as regulated for a military uniform. Starting from the 60s, all Supreme Soviet members received one badge of each type, to fit any occasion.

    As one would expect, neither badge shows any evidence of having been worn for very long; however both show evidence of use. Both are in very fine to excellent condition, without chips or flaking to enamel but showing occasional tiny scratches. Both show untouched silver patina. Original gold plated silver screw plate is included with the screw back badge. Both badges show the engraved serial number НТ-228 ("NT-228") which corresponds with the electoral district of the deputy who once owned them.

    The box is of very nice quality. Covered in red leatherette, it has a gold impression of the Supreme Soviet building - part of the Moscow Kremlin complex. Inside cover is padded with moiré silk, with imprint of the inner sanctum of the Kremlin, as viewed from behind the Spassky Clock Tower. Fitted nests for the badges are lined in red velvet. The elegantly constructed box is in excellent condition, sound and clean.

    The wording on these badges and the brief period of time that they were actually "in service" makes them quite unique. A matching set of any two Supreme Soviet badges with a box is very hard to find, but the 1989 People's Deputy set is in the league of its own in this regard. It is certainly worthy of a place of honor in a truly first rank collection of Soviet material.
