This is one from my small collection of rare stringed instruments.
A genuine full-size Russian Balalaika, in excellent condition except for some dust and a few minor marks consistent with it's age.
Made in 1979 in anticipation of and to commemorate the forthcoming 1980 Winter Olympics in Moscow.
Model Number 205 - OJI, with all the other info in Russian, but the sound hole is just too small to allow me to photograph it.
Very well made, and ready to play by someone who has the knowledge, or is willing to learn.
It is also a very collectable item, even if you just hang it on the wall.
Will consider a reasonable offer.
