    Badge for Excellence in Finance, USSR Ministry of Finance, Variation 2, #012690, circa mid-1950s.

    Badge for Excellence in Finance, USSR Ministry of Finance, Variation 2, #012690, circa mid-1950s.

    Brass, enamels; measures 37.3 mm in height, 27.9 mm in width. Interesting artwork consisting of stacks of coins and "Chervontes" ten-ruble bank notes, with ubiquitous tractor on the background. Writing on the flag is "USSR Ministry of Finance" which in 1946 replaced the earlier abbreviation "NKF" ("Narkomat of Finance".) This is an early "flat back" version of the Ministry award, with a solid, slightly concaved construction of the reverse - as opposed to relief reverse of the later version. This specimen is of late sub- variation featuring relatively flat reverse of the banner which provides space for the serial number. The mint mark "MMD" is located under the screw post to the right.

    In excellent, near mint condition. The enamel is absolutely flawless and retains beautiful luster. The original gilt finish as well as the bronze finish on the banknotes and buildings is pristine - a very unusual case. The screw post is over 9 mm long. Comes with original mint marked screw plate.

    /"Avers 8", p. 213, fig. 1066.b/
