Found another one of these on the web.

Ribbon chart at Orders and Medals of the Hungarian People's Republic 1949-1989

suggests that this is the Distinguished Labor Decoration founded in 1977 (Kivaló Munkáért kitüntetõ jelvény)

Re: Excellent Worker Badges

Though not a badge but, rather, a medal, the Kivalo Munkaert, or Distinguished Labour Medal (1977) deserves to be shown here. Not rare at all, but certainly attractive, it's in the original plastic case.

Re: Excellent Worker Honour Badge.

Here is the Excellent Worker Honour Badge. Often confused for a Medal as it has the usual triangular suspension and multi-piece construction which is of higher quality than many of the Medals.

A nice heavy piece.
