Honored State Security Employee badge, numbered : 4202 , circa mid to late 1970's issue. Silver-plated brass, gilt and enamel; 47.5 mm x 26.1 mm. Two-piece construction: the star is a separate superimposed part held by rivets to the shield-shaped base. This version of the badge has some rather unique features such as horizontal relief "bars" on the reverse in the central portion and nicely finished rivets attaching the star are identical to what is usually referred to as Variation 3.Normally, the serial number on this variation of the Honored KGB Badge would be engraved in two sections to the left and right of center, near the bottom of the reverse. Its serial number range is approximately 5600 - 5950; with fewer than 400 of them ever made, this version stands out among other Honored KGB badges in terms of rarity. The badge is in excellent condition. The gilt finish on the star is perfect and bright.
Very attractive dark patina to the silver finish on both sides. The screw post is full length, approx. 9.5 mm, and comes with original mint marked screw plate. Without exaggeration, this badge represents a once in a lifetime opportunity for the advanced collector.
