Where Yesterday Meets Tomorrow
We have to take slight exception to one ACRN article. They reported a flood of soviet era metals, military items, badges, toys, etc. and dismiss the items as "junk" and "trinkets." The items are authentic and fascinating pieces of history. ACRN's concern is that they are being hyped as rare. In most cases, millions of the items exist. So don't pay more than a few dollars for them.
