    Default Soviet paybooks...maybe?

    Greetings comrades, I was wondering what do I have here exactly? Thanks for any help you guys can be.

    When I find things that are not even in my alphabet, never mind language, I tend to get a little stuck The smaller one is optimistically dated for each month/year (wages?) up to 1999 I think.

    I think they're books for party membership/ paying party dues.

    That makes sense from the layout Joe, they are good and red too which should have been my hint I guess! lol

    Exactly, thanks mate. I googled it after your first comment and found them straight away. Kinda cool little things, I wonder what the paragraph says about the guy in the big book.

    Thanks Joe

    Hi
    The larger books were kept as a sort of personnel file at the local Party HQ where the person was registered as living (almost like a wehrpass whereas the smaller one is akin to a soldbuch). Most people when the wall fell went to these HQ's and removed their books and destroyed them, some people, however, sold theirs. The smaller book is a "Party ticket" which IDs you as a member of the Party and as you surmised is a record of your dues payments. Hope this helps...
