These preassembled wooden display stands hold four coasters until you need them. The display stand is manufactured especially for the Moscow coaster set, and features a Moscow-titled manhole cover on the front. Please note the coasters themselves are sold separately.
Moscow, USSR; the capital of one of the two great superpowers of the latter half of the 20th Century, and perhaps the most difficult environment the Central Intelligence Agency and other US intelligence organizations ever attempted to operate in. It was also the site of one of their greatest successes, when case officer Ken Seacrest successfully slipped through the KGB surveillance net surrounding the US Embassy and descended through a manhole cover just like this one to tap subterrenean communication cables running between the Krasnaya Pakhra Nuclear Weapons Research Institute and Soviet Ministry of Defense in the late 1970s.
These coasters are manufactured in Philadelphia, PA with all-natural Portuguese cork, using hand-drawn illustrations and etchings. They are a quarter-inch thick and four inches in diameter. They make for fantastic gifts for your history-minded friends and relatives, and a great conversation piece to boot. The Portuguese cork will stand up to years of use.
