Mikhail Gorbachev Pin

Soviet-era souvenir pin of Mikhail Gorbachev. This is a souvenir my father brought back from his trip to the Soviet Union (sometime between 1985 and 1991). Upon close inspection, the image on this pin appears to be photographically developed and not offset printed. The pin back itself is made of white plastic. Of note are two facts: Gorbachev's birthmark is not shown, and there is no fixed price imprinted on the back of this pin.
