Sleeve Patch of a Member of the Soviet Union's National Olympic Team, circa 1970s-80s.
Measures about 1 ¾ "x 3 ½" with national emblem of the USSR beautifully embroidered in bullion and silk on a magenta-colored background. The quality is really superb, meant to impress the public abroad and promote the image of the Soviet Union. The patch is in excellent condition.
Beside the Olympic team, the patch could also be worn by a Soviet athlete at other major international sports competitions.
