Badge of an Activist of MOPR (Society to Help Revolutionaries)
Made of bronzed steel and enamels. The badge measures 26.59 mm in height and 27.40 mm in width and weighs 4.5 grams without its screwplate.
The badge is in excellent, above average condition with crisp details and light wear only. The enamels are well preserved and free from flaking or repairs and its details are still visible and crisp. The badge includes a time period screwplate which fits a bit wobbly.
Created by Komintern in 1922, MOPR had a purpose of liberating terrorists from jails around the world, and fomenting anti-government activities in foreign countries. Although many Soviet citizens were enrolled in it and had to make “voluntary” monthly contributions, the activist members deserving a special badge were relatively few.
