M 1935 Red Army Officer hat badge, 1935 - 1940.

In magnetic steel with brass plating and high-quality enamel; 30.5 mm wide, 29.2 mm tall. The hammer & sickle emblem is a separate part attached by wires.

In good overall condition. The enamel is essentially perfect: shows nice luster and has just a few miniscule contact marks practically unnoticeable to the naked eye, no chips, flaking or significant rubbing. The hammer and sickle emblem is somewhat misshapen and has a degree of oxidation coming out from under the bronze finish, not too detractive. There is more oxidation on the reverse. One of the prongs is missing, but

In magnetic steel with brass plating and high-quality enamel; 30.5 mm wide, 29.2 mm tall. The hammer & sickle emblem is a separate part attached by wires.

In good overall condition. The enamel is essentially perfect: shows nice luster and has just a few miniscule contact marks practically unnoticeable to the naked eye, no chips, flaking or significant rubbing. The hammer and sickle emblem is somewhat misshapen and has a degree of oxidation coming out from under the bronze finish, not too detractive. There is more oxidation on the reverse. One of the prongs is missing, but the remaining one should be sufficient to attach the badge to a hat (please note however that we cannot guarantee how pliable it is: if you accidentally break the prong, our return policy is voided.)

This is an original star, with original enamel, not a reproduction or restoration. Although manufactured prior to the Patriotic War, this kind of hat badge was in continuous use throughout the war. Excellent piece to replace a missing example, also a fine stand-alone display item due to its superior quality and classic WW2 style. These early WW2 / pre-war Soviet hat badges have become very scarce in recent years.
