Silver plated or aluminum cigarette case made in the Soviet Union in the 1950's. It is engraved 1957 and also has the correct number of ribbons on the coat of arms (16) for the 1950's.The Soviet Union had 16 ribbons only in the 50's. This case also survived the "DeStalinization" period of the 1950's where the Soviet Union told everyone to destroy or discard anything that had to do with Stalin or the time period of the 50's. The inside has the maker's mark MMA. I think this is the Moscow Mint. I did not shine this up because many people like the original patina however it would probably shine up nice and look beautiful. Very old, very rare and very collectible. This would be a great addition to anybody's Soviet collection.
