Badge "Participant Of The Virgin Lands Harvest 1957".

To a Participant of the Virgin Lands Harvest Campaign, 1957.
Award badge issued by the VLKSM Central Committee.
I think I've seen a '58 dated badge as well.
maker marked pin plate I believe.

Igor describes it as: "24mm tall. Brass, enamels, maker marked."
