Perestroika Exhibition Pins

I found these pins at a local thrift shop, paying 50 cents for the bag. These were commemorative pins for the 1989 Perestroika traveling exhibition. I found an online article from the December 13, 1989 issue of the Orlando Sentinel announcing the exhibition's arrival, "Perestroika Comes To Orlando Show To Give Orlando A View Of Soviet Life." The pins seem to have some value, selling for several dollars each. Of course, I got them because I liked them. Plus, they reminded me of my 28mm Soviets.

  1. One of the guys here locally bought some German money from WW2 that he found on Ebay...he was excited to use them as markers.
