    Dom,

    I ask because of the one I have... This is a German soldier's wallet with RKKA cap and collar insignia period attached. The target center of the rifles device is quite interesting wouldn't you agree?? ... and no flash photography

    I actually have 4 of the red triangle pins with Артель.Лен.Змальер on the back of the pin stop. My grandfather traded salt for them in 1942 when in Murmansk on a mine sweeper ship for the royal navy. Do you know anything else about them, I have struggled to find much of any information.
