Soviet Military Badges

story continues below...

Collecting militaria is big business and extremely popular and getting it right can mean all the difference between making an investment with good purchase or losing money for a bad one. With the end of the Cold War and the collapse of Communism in Europe, a whole new field of collecting opened up to military enthusiasts. The author is an experienced and respected collector himself and in this work he lays out what a collector should be looking for and what to avoid. The subject is a veritable ‘minefield’ for anyone entering the field of collecting, but in this work, which is sub-titled ‘A History and Collectors Guide’, the would-be collector is steered through the diversity of Soviet military from proficiency badges, military schools and colleges, guards, and various other units including youth and technical. In fact, there appears to be very little he does not cover. This is a slim volume, just the right size to take with you to militaria fairs as a guide to Soviet badges. Guidebooks really do not come much handier than this.
