Gentlemen,

This looks like a standard issue 1975 Mine Clearing Badge:

... well, it's not. Look at the back of the suspension. These copies were made in the early 90s. I have also seen them with the "Made in..." erased, which of course left ugly marks on the back.

Reverse of a legit badge:

Here is the reverse of another. I believe it to be a restrike as it is quite different from the reverse posted by Alexei.

Danny,

Looks like it... Is it possible to see the back of the suspension?

I've asked for more scans and got it. It is definitely a copy with the "Made in the USSR" mark on the back. To stay away from this one.
