Best Medical Nurse, Badge of a Winner of the Competition of the 4th Main Agency, Ministry of Health of USSR, circa late 1970s-1980s.
Brass gilt, enamels. Very large size, 56.1 x 27.5 mm badge of outstanding quality. Reverse shows late-style raised logo of the Moscow Mint.
Excellent condition. Note, the Fourth Agency ran the special "closed" medical facilities treating the Soviet party elite (this explains the exceptional quality of the badge).
