The Russian Store has a nice collection of Soviet Era pins. Each of these authentic vintage pins was made in Russia before the collapse of the Soviet Union. They make the perfect addition to any historical and/or military collection. This authentic and original lapel pin was awarded to outstanding students graduating from the Soviet Union universities. It was manufactured by the Leningrad Mint. It is hand enameled with royal blue and white enamel, and has a Soviet gold plated crest in the center of it. The screw-on backing is meant to be worn on your lapel.
