So i bought a few items from a garage sale, over 15 years ago, in Brooklyn. Amongst the items, was a small tin box. Inside, a few precision tools and a knife. From Aeroflot
I wonder if there is a value on item... Perhaps an auction on eBay?????
Check it out.

What, no bottle opener? Oh yeah, Vodka has a screw top.   
That's a pretty cool piece of memorabilia.

Every airline should give PAX one of those on every flight. It's a nice gift and would make a potential hijacker think twice about any actions.

Well, wouldn't any hijacker have access to those, also?

Yeah, but they'd be out numbered.

I would love to have that one, please let us know if you put it on Ebay.
Value? I have no idea, so I couldn't really give you an offer now.

EPIC find. If you call yourself a airline/aircraft fanatic, you would NOT be auctioning that piece off.

'Nuff said.

BTW,

The 2p50k on the back side means 2 Rubles and 50 Kopeks.

With the current exchange rate that translates to $0.08 USD. Worth quite a lot now.

Wow, pretty consistent pricing in the USSR back then I suppose, if the price actually was cast in the brass!

For that price, I'll take ten! If you do sell it, let us know. I'd love to have it.
