    Shock Worker of Stalin Labor Campaign badge, mid-1940s.

    Shock Worker of Stalin Labor Campaign badge, mid-1940s.

    Brass and enamels; 35.9 mm tall (including the upper flagpole finial), 34.8 mm wide. Shows steam engine locomotive under red flag with "Stalin" written on the front, and with stylized sickle and hammer emblem. This is a WW2 version of the badge featuring silver finish on the locomotive, cogwheel and the reverse, thick screw post (about 3.8 mm in diameter) and black enamel in the lettering around the sickle. Excellent quality.

    In excellent condition. The enamel shows beautiful luster and is completely free of the usual chips, noticeable wear or significant flaking. There is only a single miniscule flake at the upper edge of the banner that is practically unnoticeable to the naked eye and a couple of microscopic hairlines in the same area. The enamel however remains perfectly sound and appears perfect without magnification. The details of the artwork are perfect and crisp; the silver finish is exceptionally well preserved having only very minimal, barely detectable wear to the highest points of the locomotive. The silver plating on the reverse is perfect. The screw post is full length, approximately 12-mm long. Includes original pre-1947 screw plate maker marked "ShMZ NKPS" ("Mechanical Stamping Factory, Narkomat of Railroad Transportation").

    /See V. Krivtsov, "Avers 8 - Catalog of Soviet Badges and Jettons", fig. 741b/.
