Description

    Massive 1980 USSR Summer Olympics Pin and Badge Collection Lot of 498. This impressive hoard of Soviet-issued pins and badges comes to us by way of the XXII Summer Olympiad that was held in Moscow in 1980. The comprehensive collection includes multiple styles of pins and badges focusing on the individual events. We also present several general exemplars for the entire Olympiad as well as several that feature the Games' official mascot, Bear Cub Misha. A total of 498 pins appear here, with all originating from the Soviet Union and all but a smattering coming from the 1980 Games. A couple of the examples are Soviet team pins from the 1964 Olympics. Due to the United States boycotting this Olympics because of political reasons these pins are scarce here and for that reason should go for quite a premium.
