    Excellent Combat Engineer badge, mid 1940s.

    Excellent Combat Engineer badge, mid 1940s.

    Brass, enamels. The first, elongated version of the badge, measuring 48.2 mm x 37.9 mm. Features scallop-shaped top ornament, with 7 small scrolls.

    In very fine to excellent condition, outstanding for a badge of this vintage. The red enamel is beautifully preserved having only a few tiny contact and microscopic scratches; retains very attractive luster. The white enamel on the band has buffing and a couple of tiny flakes that are nearly unnoticeable. The wreath has exceptionally crisp details and still retains nearly all of the original silver finish. The even more fragile grey finish on the edge of the shield is also almost perfect.

    The reverse and screw plate have fair amount of verdigris which adds character whereas silver finish is fully present in the central portion of the reverse and the inside of the screw plate. The screw post is about 12 mm long, might have been reduced by just a couple of mm but still fully functional, with good threads. The screw plate marked "ShMZ NKPS" is original to the badge.

    /See "Breast Badges of the Red Army, 1941-1945", p. 100, fig. 1/
