The Vintage USSR Air Force Matchbox features a propaganda style portrait showing a Soviet fighter pilot flying high in his MiG jet, complete with a number of red stars to denote his success in air combat. With a sky featuring clouds and other Soviet jet fighters in the distance, you can imagine how new and veteran pilots of the Soviet Air Force felt every time they used these matches to light a smoke.
We found these matchboxes in the Baltics and knew we wanted to import them. Due to regulations on shipping matches and wood products, we had all of the original matches removed to satisfy US Customs regulations. No worry though, we've put 10 brand new wooden matches into each box, allowing you to display the matchbox or use it as intended at your next historical event.
