A Brace Of Sputniks.






Just received these 1st MWF [Poljot] Sputniks,its becoming very hard to find original ones now.So a big thanks must go to Robert Prochowicz,for being such an honest seller,[check out Roberts great collection in my favourite links section].
They are in great overall condition,keeping excellent time,i have been after an original Sputnik,at a reasonable price for some time,[i had to sell one i had before and always regretted it],so,it was a very pleasant surprise to end up with two.
They were, of course,made to commemorate the successful launch of the Sputnik satellite in October 1957.
Great additions to the collection.
