Seems like a fancy description for something cheap (aluminium, pinback) ...

on eBay, everything turns KGB.

It doesn't look Soviet at all.
Under the banner of Marxism-Leninism, under the leadership of the Communist Party--forward to new victories in the construction of communism!

I have never seen such badge, but the story itself isn't very improbable and at the same time it's quite unlikely someone would make up such story.
It doesn't look soviet, but those leaves (wreath around the emblem) are similar to ones seen on soviet badges.
Maybe it's a modern piece?
