Kabul House-Construction Plant Badges.

Recently bought on e*** as "labour badges". Apparently for the same organisation. The coat of arms with the coran denotes a pre 1987 made.
Soviet made by the same mint.

What are they exactly ?

I never saw badges like these before, only medals. Did anyone know if badges like "best soldier", sport badge, parachutist... did exist ?

Hi Felix,
Yes badges do exit, these badges are for the building of socialismus and as you state correctly different time periods.

I suspect they are for some kind of merit in this field not only propaganda badges. If i find any more types i'll post them here.

Re: Kabul House-Construction Plant Badges.

КДСК was Кабульский Домостроительный Комбинат (The Kabul House-Construction Plant).

Re: Kabul House-Construction Plant Badges.

I think both Badges are different Types of the same award, I believe the black word is "Construction", so maybe "Excellent Construction Worker".

The KDSK was a Soviet venture but will have been augmented by Afghani staff.

Re: Kabul House-Construction Plant Badges.

If this is "House-Construction Plantit" it is most likely a "houses factory" - a factory that produces pre-fabricated elements for the "large plate" blocks of flats that were so popular in all the East Block.

Re: Kabul House-Construction Plant Badges.

This is one of the buildings thrown up by the KHCP.

Bringing a taste of Versailles to the Proletariat of Afghanistan.
