    Default Eastern Bloc Stick Pins?

    Hello
    What are your thoughts on these pins?

    1. Dubcek is a Czech politician

    2. Presov is a city in eastern Slovakia

    3. Red star with PCO Russian made?

    Are these pins Militaria, political or souvenir related?
    I was thinking maybe 1960s era?
    Thank you
    Tony

    Hi, the red star pin is also Czechoslovakian. PCO means "Pripraven k civilni ochrane", in english something like "Ready for civilian defence" or "Ready for air-raid protection".

    Default Czechoslovakia pins

    Nice pins. You can call the pins of Alexander Dubček and the city of Presov souvenir pins.
    You can read more about Alexander Dubček here; Alexander Dubček - Wikipedia .
    The pin from PCO (see response from Ladis) is perhaps a membership pin.
    PCO seems to me to be the Czechoslovak variant of the Soviet OSOAVIAKhIM PVKhO Ready for Chemical & Anti Aircraft defense.
