ODVF (Society of Friends of the Air Fleet), Moscow Chapter, membership badge, 1923-1925.

Brass, enamels. Measures 29.2 mm tall at the flagpole, 14.9 mm in height of the flag, 28.8 mm in width.

In very fine condition, unusually nice for this badge. The enamel shows tiny contact marks, microscopic flaking along the upper edge and some barely noticeable hairline cracks, not detracting. Completely free of the usual significant flaking or chips. Even the original red enamel in the flagpole finial is present. Gilt finish on the reverse is mostly present, although it shows wear in spots.

The screw post has been shortened for convenience of wearing the badge but its 6.5 mm remaining length is more than enough to ensure proper functionality. Comes with a screw plate maker marked "USSR Art Fund Workshop" which is roughly contemporary to the badge although probably not original to it.
