Hello,
I need help to identify this badge. I think it is a badge from the russian Empire.
Unfortunately I do not know anything about this badge. I would appreciate any information.

best regards, Sylvia

It is a Courier Corps cockade that has been converted from a screwback to a pinback.

Re: Please help identify

It probably dates from the early 20th century. It would have been affixed to headwear. The Imperial Courier Corps was founded on 17th December 1796 and collapsed with the Tsar. An internal state and military mail carrier.

The current "descendant" of the Courier Corps is the State Courier Service Of The Russian Federation.

Not a combatant's piece but a nice obscure insignia. The current State Courier Service will be a considerably smaller service than the original Corps due to the increased speed of communication. Digital communications are considerably less dependant on manpower than hand delivering a communique along a chain of couriers from Petrograd to Vladivostok.
