I can't see the details too well, but it isn't tanks on each sides of the shield is it?

These are Armor vehicle proficiency badges 1st and 2nd class. So the first image is a 1st class.

I'm not sure if it is. Although I can't find this series in some of the badges book that I own, I did find them in the Soviet Medals and Badges, by Phil Bartel and Ivan Karnes plate number 72. According to this book there were two types: First type in the 50's were SB and the second type after the 50's was PB. In comparing them to the tank proficiency badges, they seem constructed the same way. I just received a serie of 1st, 2nd and 3rd classes of these Armor Vehicle proficiency badges. Unless I can be pointed in the right direction, I would have to say that they are Soviet.

Here is the set I just bought. They are also pinbacks.

I was able to obtain a bit more information on this series of badges. They are Soviet and came out at the same time as the tank proficiency badges but were only in circulation for a few years and were replaced by the combined arms badges. This info courtesy of Othlichnik (Shawn).

Badge "Tank Specialist".

Hello,

in which time period were these tank classification badges awarded?

I have one made out of brass with a needle system and one made out of a lighter metall with screwback system.

Are there any fakes made from this badge?

regards
Andreas

the older one
