So much of the Sovietica that's sold by the vendors on the Andriyivski Uzviz in Kyiv is phony that I rarely pay attention to it anymore. All the good stuff has been snapped up. Tbilisi actually still has the best selection of the real stuff, with a heavy emphasis on Stalin.
So imagine my surprise today when I was gift shopping and ran across this:
It's a steel medallion from the front of a locomotive. It weighs about 20 pounds. Can't pass something like this up!
