Brussels 1958-1958 U.S.S.R Pin Back (Get One Free!)
This was a giveaway at the Soviet Building at the Belgium Expo in 1958. It is quite light so I’m guessing that under the gilt and enamel finish it is aluminum. The pin is an unusual and quite small design and the workmanship on the colorful surface is nicer than I would have expected having seen many Soviet/Russian souvenir sports pinbacks.
If you would rather not purchase one of these inexpensive pins I’ll give one away to anyone who purchases more than $100 in items from this sale (including both our store and the auctions on Ebay) upon request--until I run out. I have a small quantity of these that turned up suddenly and I purchased the entire lot. I think that until I found these, the number in the marketplace was about ZERO.
