Ministry Of Internal Affairs Unofficial Commemorative/Veteran Badges

Have collected only a few of these over time, mostly going for fairly unique pieces you don't encounter often; thought I'd post them here. Feel free to add yours.

This first piece is not so unique. Small pin-type znacki commemorating 50 years of the Volgograd (Stalingrad) Militia. I have seen examples where the white and red paint are switched.

Re: Interior Ministry Unofficial Commemorative/Veteran Badges

This light alloy badge commemorates 40 years of the BKSS of the Georgian MVD. This department, from what I can gather, actively investigated misappropriation of government funds and other assets. They must have stayed very busy, especially towards the end. Oddly enough, this badge has a price on the back.

Re: Ministry Of Internal Affairs Unofficial Commemorative/Veteran Badges

This next badge is one of my favorites. Made of brass with a paint that, I believe, is "baking enamel"- extremely tough, the only drawback is that the colour as applied will change during the baking process (often darkening). Anyway, it commemorates 50 years of the Militia of Armenia. The only other place I have seen one of these in in Rogov's book.

Re: Ministry Of Internal Affairs Unofficial Commemorative/Veteran Badges

Another of my personal favorites, and the last for now... I've not seen this one anywhere else. 60 years of the MVD of the Adjara Autonomous Republic. While the suspension is made of aluminum, the body is made from, I believe, solid copper- quite heavy.
