    Excellence in the Air Force badge, 1950s.

    Excellence in the Air Force badge, 1950s.

    Brass, enamels. 44.9 mm tall, 35.6 mm wide. Scarce variation with both words located in the upper part of the badge.

    In very fine condition. The red enamel in the center has a shallow chip / flaking in the segment above the handle of the sickle, below the hammer. There are also some hairlines above the handle of the hammer resulting in the slightly darker area of enamel. Because the damage does not penetrate to metal, it is not very glaring and does not significantly detract from the overall appearance of the badge. Most of the red enamel is intact and shows nice luster. The white and turquoise enamels are almost perfect having only occasional hairlines and tiny scratches that are practically unnoticeable to the naked eye. The nickel finish on the wings emblem is nice and bright. The gilt finish is extremely well preserved on the wreath and propeller, and is completely pristine on the reverse of the badge. The screw post is full length, approx. 11.5 mm, and comes with original screw plate marked "Pobeda Factory, Moscow".

    /See "Breast Badges of the Red Army, 1941-1945", p. 139, fig. 4/.
