The badge you have is for the Imperial Russian Military Cadet School from Odessa. The letters "OBY" stands for "Odessa Military School".

I use to collect Imperial Russian regimental badges. I sold off my collection due to all the fakes being produced and only concentrate on Royal Romanian badges. Sorry to inform you, this Odessa badge is a currently made cast copy.

Thank you for the info, REGAL UNIFORMA COLECTOR.

Actually it is not latin Y letter but Cirilic У - Одесское Военное Училище.
