    Presentation to Soviet Space Dignitary Vasily Savinsky Commemorating Korolyov's 70th Birthday. A handsome presentation of 8.5" x 5.5" at the base and 13.75" tall overall. It features an image of legendary Soviet rocket engineer and designer Sergey Korolyov (1907-1966) as well as a metal rocket model. The engraving on the base reads (translated): "To the Respected Vasily Vasilyevich Savinsky, the Head of the Department of the Nuclear Security of the Launching Place Baikonur from the Commanders of the Launching Place on the day of the 70th Birthday of Sergey Korolyov. January 12, 1977. Launching Place Baikonur." In a real sense, Korolyov was the Soviet counterpart of America's Wernher von Braun as the chief architects of the space race. Fine condition.
