Naval Air Force badge for officers of carrier-based planes.
Brass, enamel; 60 mm wide. Raised Leningrad mint mark to the reverse. Excellent, near mint condition; comes with original mint marked screw plate.
This badge was introduced in 1991, among the last military badges of the Soviet period. Therefore we consider it a Soviet badge even though it was actually made at the Leningrad Mint only in 1992. A quantity of 3000 was produced in total. /See Borisov, fig. 388/.
