Looking for info on this set of Soviet aircraft pins

Sun Dec 30, 2018 12:19 am

I came across this set of pins in an antique store last week and bought them as a present to myself. All I can tell about them is that they obviously have Soviet aircraft on them, and I'm assuming they're from the 1980s since the newest aircraft depicted are from 1981. I think the years represent the years those aircraft entered service with Aeroflot. I'm wondering if someone here might know more about them. Were these something that were given to Aeroflot passengers during the Soviet era? Or to pilots or other Aeroflot employees? Given when they appear to have been made, I wonder if perhaps they were to commemorate the 60th anniversary of Aeroflot's first flight, which would have been 1984.
