    Just when I was trying to collect only 60's and later Soviet sets you start showing this 

    I know. Did you see that set informaticacobach29 has on its way? It looks like an early version of the Tal. No to mention, goodknightmike has his 1941, and cgrau his 40s set. Oh, what to do, what to do.

    And then this old-timer is being offered now but it's way beyond my reach:

    It is sweet, indeed, goodknightmike, kicking back on a Sunday afternoon, enjoying a nice cold one, and playing on a chess set that is no longer made and from a country that no longer exists. Oh, the times we live in!

    Awesome, Herve!

    Loving a set is quite a personal taste, I won't talk about this.
    But a set must be "playable" IMHO. This one has pieces much too big when compared to the size of the squares. With such a crowdy set it's difficult to see anything.
