Badge "50 Years Of Ukranian KGB".

I have these 3 Ukranian KGB 50th anniversary badges. I found little info on them, more specifically I found no mention that they were awarded in three classes. Now, I may be going crazy :D , but these seem like Gold, Silver an Bronze class, or don't they?
Please let me know what you guys think.

Interesting theory. More likely they were made under contract by different manufacturers like the 25th anniversary of victory veteran badge.

That is also an interesting theory, but all three have got the exact same mintmark on the revers. So, I am still :confused:

I've seen this with other veteran badges, the Polar Front and Black Sea Fleet ones being the ones that immediately come to mind. It seems there was an initial order to the factory and then subsequent orders as the stocks ran out. I have document proof of this for the Black Sea Fleet badges. The badges are similar with only minor changes as on these 50th anniversary Checka badges, but I have two different documents showing the badges on the cover. The documents are from two different years, 1973 and 1975.
