The raised details of the artwork are likewise perfectly preserved and crisp. A good amount of the original silver finish is still present on the oval border; the gold plating on the wreath and reverse of the badge is intact. The screw post is full length, approx. 11.5 mm, and includes original screw plate maker-marked "ShM Z-D MPS" ("Mechanical Stamping Factory, Ministry of Railroad Transportation").

The Excellent Railway Administrator is among the harder to find badges of the Soviet WW2 railroad proficiency series of 1943-57.
