Tourist Pieces.

A while ago i bought a badge, but im not sure what badge it is. Id scan a picture of it, but i dont have a scanner :( Here is a picture i tried to make of it. I know its very sloppy, but im a really bad artist. If anyone can identify it and/or has info on it, id really apreciate it. And on the back of the suspension, it has in cyrillic "Ts52K" below the pin.

Frieza,

Looks like you've got a common znachki-type pin. These were given out or sold to citizens as inexpensive tokens for people/places/events. There's a whole community that collects various subjects, but the most common are veteran commemoratives of the Great Patriotic War ( like what you have here ) and images of Lenin.

Hi

I think it is part of the 3 badges issued by the Communist party of the Russian federation (Zhirinovsky):

The whole set goes for no more than $25 in USA, cheaper than that in Russia.

Frieza,

Your pin is worth about $1. Sorry, wish it was more but these were cranked out in such quantity and with such inexpensive materials (usually cheap aluminum) they are usually sold in quantity to attach any value to them. BTW, I believe the 52K is the price, 52 Kopecks. Please don't quote me on that though ;)

Ts52K is indeed Tsena (price) 52 kopecks.

It is a collectors pin commemorating WWII victory.
