Badge "60 Years Of Moscow State Institute Of Foreign Relations University".

This is an interesting newer type of pin/badge for the 60th anniversary of the MGIMO (Moscow State Institute of Foreign Relations - University). Actually, the pin is more confusing that the history of the university whose name has evolved, I think, at least once. Since for some reason my search function won't let me find any of my posts with the graduation badges of this university/institute, I don't have any reference photos for the graduation badges. The fact is, I no longer know what a graduation badge from MGIMO really looks like. I may have one, but I'm not sure anymore because of some bad information I got a while back from a noted Jersey seller.

Anyway, this pin is just about 2.5cm across and when I saw the Western-style clasp pin back, I had my doubts, but the MMD mint mark (the tiniest version I have ever seen) made it all right. It must be a post-Soviet piece, but since I'm not sure when MGIMO officially came into existence.

If anyone has a grad badge from this institution, please post a picture or two here so I can be sure of what I have - and many thanks in advance.
