    Soviet Vintage Sputnik 1 Satellite Souvenir Model on Base. On a 1.875" hemispheric base is mounted a 2.75" long model, overall height is 2". There is a hammer and sickle emblem on the front of the satellite body and the word "МИР" (peace) trails behind. On the base: "4 - X - 1957r CCCP" which indicates the launch date of October 4, 1957, atop a Sputnik 8K71PS launch vehicle at Baikonur. This was Earth's first artificial satellite and it remained in orbit until January 4, 1958. A great souvenir of a landmark launch. Excellent.
