Badge "50 Years Of Georgian Militia".

This one has all of the symbols of being a proper security/prosecutor's office badge, but my lack of ability to read Georgian prevents me from knowing for sure what anniversary is being celebrated here.

Any thoughts?

Re: Georgian security/police badge?

Phil, in that the Georgian republic stood up in '21/'22 the 50th anniversary would put that in the realm of the early '70s. My elementary knowledge of Georgian allows me to read it - "Georgian Militsiya (Police)."

Re: Georgian security/police badge?

Thank you kind sir. The seller said something about it being "USSR - Georgian SSR badge devoted to the 50th anniversary, 1921-1971, of the communist public security authorities in Georgia, part of the Soviet KGB."[spelling corrected]

I have my doubts and think it is just another attempt to slap "KGB" onto an item for better resale value...

However, I know the seller and can get it for a very reasonable price - if I know what it really is.;)
