    Academy of Social Sciences (AON) at the Central Committee of the Communist Party, graduate badge, circa 1980s.

    Academy of Social Sciences (AON) at the Central Committee of the Communist Party, graduate badge, circa 1980s.

    Brass, paint; 50.1 x 26.6 mm; riveted three-piece construction.

    In excellent condition. The finishes and details are perfect. The screw post is full length, approx. 10.5 mm. Comes with an unmarked period screw plate which is probably original to the badge.

    The plaque shows abbreviation "АОН при ЦК КПСС" (Academy of Social Sciences at [run by] the Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union). In a place ostensibly not run by a communist party such sciences could be referred to as liberal arts. The academy gave necessary credentials to "scientific" wing of the top party apparatchiks. It also prepared college and university professors to teach subjects such as Scientific Communism, Economy of Socialism, or Scientific Atheism (Even the mere names of those disciplines were painfully oxymoronic, so teaching them required big dose of cynicism and virtuosity - not merely bullet-proof record of party loyalty. An added bonus to those who got the coveted teaching jobs was that they were occasionally allowed access to information sources hidden from the masses - e.g. Russian history books published before the revolution or western media).
