Air Force Pilot badge, 1st class, 1950-1958 issue.
Brass, enamels; measures 67.0 mm in width, 23.5 mm in height.
In excellent condition. The enamel is perfect. The original gold and silver finishes are beautifully preserved and bright on both sides. The screw post is slightly shortened, but its remaining length of over 9 mm is more than enough for proper functionality. Comes with original screw plate of the Pobeda Factory in Moscow.
