    USSR State Emblem from International Boundary Marker, late 1940s-mid 50s manufacture.

    USSR State Emblem from International Boundary Marker, late 1940s-mid 50s manufacture.

    In solid brass with nickel plating. Weighs approx. 2 lb; measures 8" in width, approx. 8 " in height. Extremely well-made piece showing the Soviet state seal in high tri- dimensional profile. The Marxist slogan "Proletarians of All Countries, Unite!" is carefully spelled-out in languages of all Soviet republics comprising the Soviet Union at the time. Note that the number of scrolls in the emblem corresponds with 16 republics - this type of Soviet emblem was used only in 1948-1955. As far as we know, the emblems that were already on the markers were not replaced in 1955 however and could well linger until the end of the Soviet Union in late 1991. There are several stamped maker marks visible on the reverse near the lower corners.

    The plaque is outstanding, excellent condition - probably the best of its kind we have handled to date. Unlike practically all the other "Border Guard" plaques, there are no significant signs of weathering or other wear. The chrome finish is extremely bright, nearly pristine; there are none of the usual dents, scratches, or the typical "freckles" of oxidation coming from beneath the chrome plating. The plaque has been in service however judging by some minor dings and light scratches. There are a few smudges of red paint at the bottom edge and reverse that obviously came off the border marker during routine touch-ups - all of which should be easy to clean off if desired.

    An impressive Cold War piece in almost any shape, this particular plaque is an extremely rare find because of its pristine condition. Ideal background / theme item for the Soviet collection, suitable for wall or display case.

    Please note, pen in our photo is for size reference.
