The "civilian" 24h Baltika's like Dash's have all had 2623 from what I have seen. See: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/rak...a-3325570.html
As a bonus, for some additional drooling over unusual Raketa movements: https://forums.watchuseek.com/f10/ale...ml#post6585367
Unusual 1st Moscow Watch Factory deck watch spotted on Etsy. Early 1st quarter of 1951 movement without the Geneva stripes inside.

Perfectly legit. See the evolution of this type of movement:
1 - No stripes, 24 jewels, without the number of the jewels on the movement
2 - No stripes, 24 jewels, with the number of the jewels on the movement
3 - Stripes, 24 jewels, with the number of the jewels on the movement
4 - Stripes, 22 jewels, with the number of the jewels on the movement
This one wasn't around long: NOS 2209 Wostok/Vostok Amphibian 200-meters Diver made in USSR mit [email protected] | eBay.
It is a fairly convincing "NOS" example from 1985 and has a flat crown. Some of us wondered if this crown was authentic since only the round crown is clearly found on catalog examples.
Guess who took that one?
Given the general conditions, the presence of matching papers and the seller's reputation, I'm pretty confident the crown is original.
Possibly the year of production plays a role on that detail, as here's another fine example in roughly the same status (NOS with B&P, but a few storage marks) with a domed crown, which dates back to 1983.
Also very interesting to notice how on this watch the passport shows the *movement's* serial number, as there is none stamped on the caseback
This group from a demi-catalog from '83? appears to picture one with a flat crown that you wouldn't expect, upper right. I am/was fairly comfortable believing that all paddle hand examples should have the round crown. Could be a distortion in the picture, though.
