    Wonderfully strange cut and a pattern that reminds me of M29.

    Have only seen these in photos...


    Indeed a very unique set. Congrats...

    I have never even seen it in photos! Wonderful! I just got finished reading a book on Afghanistan and the Soviet period to me is especially fascinating.

    Hi Tom
    I think I have one of these stuck away somewhere
    Rumour was that about 10 made it back to the US
    Quality of cloth and stitching terrible
    Have always dreamer of picking up the almost Bulgarian geometric minus the splinters-but sadly have never had one in my hands
    Very nice
