    Soviet 23 X 115 MIG-23 shells

    Have had these, still packaged, for quite a while. Just pulled them out to display and noted the slips of paper inside each hull. I have more of them, but these two are the only ones with the "note" inside. Would appreciate an interpretation. Thanks.

    Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to speak out and remove all doubt.

    Rick it says:

    Konversion USSR 1991
    STAMP: Aviation Exhibition
    Central..... (unreadable) Moscow


    Seems this was a label for the airport security or the like.

    Thanks much, EOD. I repurposed a currency "pocket" and added your interpretation.
