Badge "Red Sports Intern"

I checked our forum, and was not able to find any thread about very important sport achivements in former Soviet Union.
Since late 1920s people in USSR participated in a sport program "Ready for Labor and Defence".
During these many years there were issued very many different badges.
Here is the first badge dedicated to "GTO"
I would like to buy it. What do you think about the price of this badge?
I know it is rare.
Eric

You ask what we think about the price of this badge, yet you don't mention one. Anything is ultimately worth what you and a seller are willing to settle on.

This may be an extremely rare badge, but if no one else collects them - rarity is not related to price. I have several extremely rare veteran badges with production numbers fewer than 500, but these are not as popular as orders and medals. I'll never get as much as a Belgrade, Odessa, or Sevastopol even though several tens of thousands of those were issued. Your GTO badge, even if unique, will probably never command the same price as the more popular and desired pieces unless you find a similar collector with the taste, appreciation, and pocket book big enough to pay what you're asking.

Pay what you're willing to spend.
