Badge "50 Years Of Membership In The Communist Party" Document.

Two variations of the award card, that came with a badge issued after 50 or more years of membership in the Soviet Communist Party.

The first one is an official Soviet issue:

This type of document (cheap and thin paper) is still issued in Russia and the Ukraine:

Alexei,

What are the difference in the document stamps? The real one has the KPSS stamp, the false one has a KPU stamp..what is KPU?

Badge for 50 years of membership in the Communist Party of the Soviet Union. The design resembles the Order of Lenin, but this cutie is smaller and worn on the collar.

This one is likely genuine

The funky clasp on the back is a bear to hook up and unhook, probably designed so that you don't lose your pin easily. There have been some fakes on the market (ebay especially) that have a simpler single hook pin back.

50 year member KPSS badge - variant

We started this post with a 50 badge that looked like Order of Lenin and was a 50 year pin for members of the Communist Party (badge in silver). It was noted by another poster that it was difficult to pin. I have one where the recipient solved that problem. An almost unique (i am sure) screwback 50 year pin for Communist Party membership!

Cool!

If you squint real hard, it almost looks like a little screwback Lenin!:thumbsup

50-year badge...

I had wondered about this one (the 50th badge), and am glad I stumbled on this posting. I have picked up two of these in the past couple months just because the construction was very nice, but I wasn't sure what I was getting.
