The lapel pin badge made of a goldish metal (brass) with a relief image of a skull topped with a commando beret.
The lapel pin is to be fastened to the lapel of a full-dress uniform with a special clip called “butterfly fitting”. Thanks to the fine needle the fastening does not leave traces or pierces on clothes, does not damage the product.
The pin badge to certify the graduation from a secondary technical school was made of a grey metal with blue enamel in the form of a hexagon with a convex rim and edging of white colour.
The pin badge was made in the USSR in the late 1980s. It could not be bought on the open market because it was attached to the diploma of secondary technical education, which was given to a graduate after passing all final qualification exams.
