Award Badge of Excellent Shock-Worker of the Chollima Movement, brass version, circa 1960s.
In brass and high quality "hot baked" enamels; the medallion measures 34.6 mm in height (incl. eyelet), 30.3 mm in width. The obverse features mythological horse Chollima (or Chkhollima). This version of the badge features counter-relief of the wreath on the reverse of the center medallion and raised inscription on the reverse of the suspension device.
In excellent condition. The enamel has tiny contact marks only, no significant wear, and shows attractive luster. The raised details including the Chollima horseman are extremely well-preserved and crisp. Attractive dark bronze toning throughout, free of significant blemishes. Some of the original mint luster visible in recessed areas, especially on the reverse. The pin attachment is intact. An uncommon and attractive early piece.
