    Army Sharpshooter Badge, 1st class (highest level), 1909- 1917 type.

    Army Sharpshooter Badge, 1st class (highest level), 1909- 1917 type.

    In brass. Measures 50.0 mm in height, 33.3 mm in width. Features a monogram of Nicholas II, crossed rifles, and bull's eye target. While the badge is beautifully detailed, its simplified one-piece construction leads us to believe that it is of WW1 manufacture.

    Excellent condition. Details of the artwork including the Nicholas' cipher and Imperial crown are perfect and crisp. There is very attractive uniform patina to both sides of the badge. The screw post is nearly 8 mm long; it was probably reduced somewhat for convenience, but its remaining length is enough for proper functionality. The maker marked screw plate of the Moscow Cooperative of Artists fits the screw well and nicely matches the color of the badge, although it is of WW2 or pre-WW2 era and not original to the badge.

    /See Patrikeev, Boynovich, "Badges of Russia", Volume 2, p. 495/
