MVD Specialist

I know the general specialist badge "first class" for soldiers and sergeants is the blue one - which group was awarded with the red one?

Alexander,

Isn't it the MVD? It seems that there are letters in the enamel under the digit "1".

Yes, thanks, I wasnt aware that they really had their own specialist badges and I feared that it was a fake. A bit clearer:

MVD Qualification Badges

Came by these fairly recently; not because they are rare but because they are, in my opinion, grossly overpriced. Finally found a set that was more reasonable.

Avers 2 has these listed as 1955; I just don't agree with that date. For one thing, these are aluminum and the '50's was not the era for aluminum badges. A retail site has these listed as being produced only from 1972 through 1974- that is more believable to me. Anyway, light alloy and paint with pin back and a mint mark consisting of a "P" surrounded by an "S"- am unsure of this mark.

Re: MVD Qualification Badges

I've had these for a while. All sources agree these are from 1978. Light alloy and paint, pin back and with the "peace sign" mark attributed to the Moscow sports and military badge factory.

Re: MVD Qualification Badges

Actually it says "Interior Service Starshina", so probably Interior troops or Fire Department. However, all starshinas were generally extended servicemen, so it is also correct.
