Russian Imperial Badge of the 77th Tenga Infantry Regiment, 1911
Extremely collectable Russian badge, Nicholas II. Gold half wreath of gold and oak branches intertwined with a gold St. George ribbon. In the centre of the shield is an silver oval bas-relief portraying the attack of Arkhip Osipov, blowing up the Mikhailovsky battlements in 1840. The shield is beneath the gold Imperial crown with gold ribbons falling from it covered in light blue enamel with the gold inscription “БРАТЦЫ ПОМНИТЕ МОЕ ДЪЛО”. In the upper parts of the shield is laid the gold raised dates “1700” and “1900” and the gold laid cyphers of the Emperors Peter I and Nicholas II.
On the Gelos in 2005 (two years ago) the same badge was sold for $1800.
