MVD Badge

Guys,

Any idea what's the exact name of this Badge?
Is it from before or after 91?
What's a reasonable value of this piece?

Thanks,

Dolf

Excellent fire fighter MBD

Dolf,

it is a badge for a "Excellent fire fighter". It has no number. So I think it is
from the 80th´s. I don´t know if these badges were awarded after the collapse of the Sovjetunion.
Normal price should be around 20 Euro´s.
There exist also the same badge with the letters NKVD insteed of MBD. The price for that badge is slightly higher :cry: .

regrads
Andreas

Re: Badge "Excellent Firefighter".

Here's a post '68 (and final) example... brass and hot enamel, Moscow mint. Nice looking, high profile, well constructed badge that isn't rare at all.

Re: Badge "Excellent Firefighter".

Greg,

Where did you get the 1968 date from?

Re: Badge "Excellent Firefighter".

Marc,

OK, back home now... Avers 8, page 420, badge #1991. It is described as an MVD, Type 2 badge. Apparently, the MVD, Type 1 would be pre-MOOP, and the Type 2 would be post-MOOP. Also, as you can see, my late model badge is brass. Ruiz' earlier badge seems to be bronze.

Best,
Greg

Re: Badge "Excellent Firefighter".

Greg,

Thank you for the information. Ruiz's badge is, IMHO, simply heavily corroded, but of the same type as the one you showed.

Marc
