Soviet CCCP coin

The last dodo bird

Recommended Posts

Worth a dollar only because of the dollar... Reminds me of the scene in White Nights where Mikhail Barishnikov bets Gregory Hines that he can do ten pirouettes and they take out their money. Defectors, each has the other's paper. Baryshnkov says, "Rubles, pretty rubles. I forgot how tiny they are." Yeah... quae mutatio rerum...


Everyone recognizes "CCCP." One time, I was working a job in Cleveland and we were comparing our ID tags with their almost meaningful character strings. One guy had GLCCP. "What's that?" I asked. "Great Lakes Soviet Socialist Republic?"
