It is a prewar Soviet 1930s Osoaviakhim Pvkho Ready for Chemical & Antiaircraft Defense badge.  It was a paramilitary civil defense organization and referred to as the Society of Assistance to Defense Aviation and Chemical building.   This was a large organization of a couple of million members which is why you see a lot of these badges which has been copied.  It came with a certificate like the one in the photograph below.

Thanks for the info, does this one appear original? 

I'm not an authority on these so I don't know.  It looks like the circular nut is missing where you find the serial numbers on at least some of the originals.
