    Default Lucky Red Star. 1804655

    I've recently completed a rather interesting transaction in which I took a chance on a number of Red Stars from Sevastopol.
    This one I have dubbed the 'lucky star' because its my first Mzpp star for my collection.

    Its in fantastic condition as well, hardly any surface scratches and a nice even patina.

    If only all my 'Sevastopol stars' were as nice as this one

    Please tell more about the Sevastopol connection and these ORS's...
    .

    Well Ritchie, the Sevastopol collection was the result of much web surfing asking questions of dealers and finally getting a reply from a guy who knew an antique dealer who had a pile of them.
    Sadly no photos and certainly not of the quality we show here.
    Finally I got him to take a picture on his mobile phone.Click image for larger version.

    Then it was down to choice and haggling with the offer of a bulk order *insert camel trader icon*
    I didn't realise until I had paid that Ukraine has the same ban on cultural exports as Russia has...then followed weeks of tense waiting as the seller dispatched them 2 by 2 as he sidestepped the customs.
    I've been a bit disappointed with a couple of them as I found chips that weren't visible in the photo (no surprise there then..) I've also been hugely pleased as I've realised that I got my first screwpost base and this Mzpp for what converted to a bit over $40 each
    All in all a good bit of collecting business and excitement.
    Cheers!
