Re: help please !

Alex,

Welcome to the Forum!

What exactly do you want/need to know about this badge. It is the Sniper badge of the RKKA, given up until roughly WW2.

Alex,

I am not too sure how to place Soviet badges in a hierarchy, especially this one. It is not a common badge, you had to stand from the crowd to receive it. It was awarded for precision shooting. Value is subjective, but an original in good condition will easily fetch several hundreds of dollars.

Hi Marc,
I have pictures with my badge this time, can you tell me from this pics if is original ? I hope that you can see all the details and make a good evaluation of it. The badge is not in a wery good shape but as you can see the enamel is intact only the screw is broken the nut is missing and have some damage on the left side from a grinder is not my intervention most probably the person from who I received deed that . If you need help with royal romanian items I am available.

many thanx Alex

Alex,

I think that it is OK, as Andreas mentioned. The only thing is that the screw was removed on the back and replaced by a pin.

This badge in original condition worth $250, with screwpost broken off, I would say $100.
