The Hammer and Sickle was a symbol of communism and the
Soviet Union. The hammer represented factory workers,
while the sickle represented agricultural laborers. The
juxtaposition of the two tools was intended to show unity
between the industrial proletariat and the rural peasantry.
This collection of Soviet insignia features the Hammer
and Sickle. At the center is the Soviet enlisted manís
cap badge. The patches are for specific Soviet military
and security organizations. The red patch is for Motorized
Rifle formations. The blue patch is for the infamous KGB,
or Committee for State Security, the Soviet secret police.
The green patch is for Soviet border guards, while the
maroon patch is for the MVD, or Ministry of Internal
Affairs, another of the shadowy security organizations.
All of these badges are original pieces, manufactured in
the Soviet Union during the Cold War and displayed within
an 8" x 6 " Display case with black liner.
