This badge is an award for an "Élenjáró katona"...or advanced soldier...in the army of the Peoples Republic of Hungary. The "Advanced Soldier" is also known as a "Front Soldier" and is quite literally positioned in the spearhead...considered the elite troops. the two main types of this award are for "Élenjáró" or "Kivalo" ("perfect") and there are three different classes for all different sectors of the military. the PRH flag in the center is from the Janos Kadar era, and the green and white triangles make this flag the "Wolf's Tooth Banner" synonymous with the PRH military. the class button is interchangable. this is a high quality chunk of brass and enamel.
The badge is 1 1/8" by 1 5/8" and is enameled red, green, and white on brass.
