Diploma Of The Supreme Soviet Of The Lithuanian SSR

Ran into this. Looks...odd. Claims its Lithuanian. He has alot of other pretty legit looking stuff, but I'm not at all sure about this thing.

Re: Diploma Of The Supreme Soviet Of The Lithuanian SSR

It looks to be a Diploma Of The Supreme Soviet Of The Lithuanian SSR recipient's portable Badge dating from the 1970's-80's. Each SSR had its equivalent. Ukrainian ones are most frequently seen.

The "strange" production of this is down to in being produced outside the state mints that people use a the benchmark of USSR items. It was most likely made in Vilnius.

For some reason Lithuanian items are considerably rarer than the items from their neighbour Latvia.

Unfortunately there can be that thin line between "snooze you lose" and "fools rush in" we all have to walk.

There's also being a snake and taking advantage of people who ask for help.

Re: Diploma Of The Supreme Soviet Of The Lithuanian SSR

These are fairly common and should not be expensive - you will find another one if you look, and yes, its the badge that was given with the Gramota from the Supreme Soviet of the Lithuanian SSR.

Re: Diploma Of The Supreme Soviet Of The Lithuanian SSR

Here is another cased example. The rather poor quality case suffers from being stored in a rather smoky environment for a considerable time - most likely a warehouse with storemen who were heavy smokers. No signs of it ever being worn (or even being removed from the case).

Re: Diploma Of The Supreme Soviet Of The Lithuanian SSR

The quality isn't "Russian" but the enamel is of a higher quality than that used on many later period SSR produced items.
