February Revolution in March

The February Revolution began on Feb 27 (old calendar) which would be March 12 new calendar.

TO be a day (or so depending upon exactly where you are) ahead, Attached is a scan of a lapel pin for the February revolution (Dated Feb 27 - old style - on the obverse). I can't get the rear to scan because of a pin. but it is marked on the pin so you could not read it anyway.

But the revolution began as an "International Womens Day" march on March 8 (Feb 23 old style) for bread and peace. Are there any other March 8, International Womens' Day badges, or February Revolution (in March) badges that anyone may care to add? I have a Bulgarian "8 Marta" badge (Post Soviet) which I cannot find at the moment. (Maybe my wife took it!?)

Wow, this must be one of the very first Soviet badges.

Possibly issued during 1917 but could have been in 1918 or so.

The badge is away right now and I have to look to see if the marks give a clue. Marked on the side of the pin.

Its sort of like those regimental badges that also display Feb 27.

Andreas,

This jetton commemorates the February 1917 Revolution that brought in the Provisional Government.

Re: Badge "Long Live Freedom".

Another bade with the slogan "Long Live Freedom" (Да Здравствует Свобода), this time from the Kuchkin factory, with the portrait of Alexander Kerensky on obverse.
