Copper gilt, paint; pendant measures 46.6 x 26.9 mm. Riveted
2-piece construction, typical of the badges and jetons of the
period. Raised writing along the edge and across the bottom is
in Ukrainian and reads "To Best Shock-Worker" and "15th
Anniversary of the October". Engraved in the center "[To] L.S.
Zetler for high results in work". The reverse is engraved
(also in Ukrainian), "From the M. K. Department of Health,
Kharkov City Council".
In very fine to excellent condition. Shows only light wear to
high points; the details of the raised inscription, wreath and
hammer & sickle emblem are nicely defined. Well preserved gold
plating in the center of the obverse. The paint on the star is
believed to be original and largely intact. Comes with
original chain suspension to attach to a button on clothing.
