Soviet Society of Friends of Chemical Defense Dobrokhim Badge 1924-1925
Badge to a friend of DOBROKHIM. Height (flag): 17.60 mm. Height (bayonet): 28.83 mm. Width: 31.88 mm. Screw length: 7.58 mm. Weight: 10.649 g. Made of solid silver and enamels. The reverse shows 3 silver hallmark stamps. The badge is in a great, above average condition with its details crisp and an appealing patina to the silver. The green enamels are mostly present and without repairs but does show a small chip in the upper left corner. There are also some surface scratches to the enamel (all pictured). Please note the absence of the screwplate. I’ve also included an ultra violet image to show the lack of modern repairs to the enamel. It also does a good job highlighting the surface condition. The Society of Friends of Chemical Defense and Chemical Industry (DOBROHIM) is a defense public organization formed on May 19th, 1924 in Moscow. The main task of DOBROKHIM was to assist the state in the development of the chemical industry, the chemicalization of agriculture, the deployment of the promotion of chemical knowledge among the population and its preparation for anti-chemical defense. In May 1925, the Society of Friends of the Air Fleet (ODVF) and the Society of Friends of Chemical Defense and Chemical Industry (DOBROHIM) merged into one Society – AVIAHIM of the USSR. We want to create a gas fence in which a new society will be built. Reach out to me with any and all questions you have. All sales are final. Condition and authentication are “as seen”.
