Lots of things wrong with this one. Also the fact that there is a pic of Zadorin in the book Khalkin-Gol 1939. And the photo shown here is not him.....

I have different opinion :confused:
BTW, there are numbers 2888 and 135 in the book
I think that the the picture of Zadorin in the document and the picture from the book is the same person.
Yes, the color of the star might be questionable. But it is a photo, lights might be incorrect. :confused:
Alexei, what do you think? ;)

Guys,

Interesting that new fashion of burning partially documents... It seems to be evolving into a habit these days!

$10,000!

I don't like the Lenin and the HSU looks rough.

Guys,

That's less than half what it should cost IF it is a genuine set. I am not overly convinced by the star and especially its suspension, and the enamel on the OL although it could be restored. As to the documents :confused:

All in all, I'd want to have seriously better scans than what is shown to even consider this set.
