    Hello all,

    I bought these two pins in a market in Sofia, Bulgaria. I'm not exactly sure what they are, but am curious if anyone has any idea on their authenticity, time period, or any other significance.

    Thanks in advance!

    The first one weighs much more than the second.

    I am of the opinion these are souvenir badges. The "15K" mark on the back of your first badge is in reference to its price, 15 kopeks.

    Bill is correct. Patriotic souvenir lapel badges. They are original.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Cool. Any idea on the time period of these?

    Recent vintage, maybe 1980 to 1990, would be my guess. . .
