This is a group of 4 pins I collected when I visited the USSR in 1971. All of these pins have the image of Vladimir Lenin on them.
“In the USSR and the People’s Republic of China, the prominent lapel pins with portraits of Lenin and Mao Tse Tung, respectively, were worn by youth as well as by Communist party members or people who felt like showing their official political credo. In Czechoslovakia the Mao badges/pins were worn in the late 1960s and early 1970s by non-conformist youth as a prank and a way to provoke the “normalisationist” reactionaries of the purged post-1968 Communist Party of Czechoslovakia. ” (source wikipedia)
