Under the banner of Marxism-Leninism, under the leadership of the Communist Party--forward to new victories in the construction of communism!

Looks nice but sure doesn't look 1920. Maybe the numbers are backwards, made in '88 and 20 years old?

I only see a maker mark but not silver proof. Until recently marks from the imperial era and early bolsheviki (20's) were frequently messed up by "copy" artists.

Too bad. A beautiful badge.
