Nice shots, good job. 

Many thanks, Warlord!


Finally, as promised a few photos of the Varna 1962 Olympiad set. As can be seen Chuck's set is similar, but there are some noticeable differences. The cross on the king, the mitre on the bishop is slightly more oblong and has a rounded "finial" up top, the rooks have a broader base and a wider crenelated top, and the pawns are slightly chunkier:nullnullnullnullnullnullnullnullnull


Nice find Chuck!


The spirit of no-nonsense socialist realism made tangible!
