Book and boat

The Selected Works positioned to the right of a warship was a fairly common design. It is likely that all these badges were issued by units of the PLA Navy, although not all are so marked; and on one of these a partially successful  attempt was made to obliterate the wording of the original inscription on the reverse die before the badge was struck.
