  1. I have a periodical (it is numbered), in color, 20 pages, from 1954. It is written in Russian, so I do not know what it says. It was part of my grandmothers possessions when she died. She was of Russian descent. I showed it to my mother, who spoke Russian, but did not read it, she said it was a propaganda magazine showing the happy, industrial, thriving people of Russia. The cover is of 6 young adults, boys and girls, gathered together with an easel beside them and one of the boys is playing the accordian while the others look on smiling,
    I believe the title is: COBETCHNN COIO3 (then a small hammer a sickle logo).
    I do not want to throw it away, Would you know of this publication or have interest an enlightening me about it.

      Cathy, its title is “USSR”, it probably is a propaganda magazine published by the commies in exchange for Americans publishing “America” for distribution in the Soviet Union (except it was not distributed). 🙂 I would keep it, it’s a rarity.
