Czechoslovakia, Socialist Republic. A Military Technical Academy Graduation Badge, c.1952

(Pametni odznak pro absolventy vojenske technicka akademie). Instituted in 1922, Re-designed in 1952. In silver with red and blue enamels, number engraved "003" on the reverse of the badge, maker marked "ZUKOV", hallmarked with a goat's head above the number "3" and marked "900" (silver) on the reverse of both the badge and the support plate, measuring 53 mm (w) x 67.5 mm (h), maker marked "ZUKOV PRAHA XI" on the screwback, intact enamels, extremely fine.

Footnote: The original design of the Military Technical Academy Graduation Badge was implemented in 1922 and was altered around 1948 by the addition of the large enamelled red star, along with the hammer and sickle insignia at the bottom. Another change in design occurred after 1954, changing appearance completely and reducing dimensions. The badge bears the Technical Academy inscription "VOJ. TECH. AKADEMIE" existed for a period of only three years: 1952-53-54, making this a rare badge.
