Vintage World Globe

This little guy is a commemorative piece which was produced by the former USSR, and celebrated the first flight in orbit by a human.

Cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin went into Space and circled Earth successfully on April 12th, 1961.
The first flight served to speed up the space race to the Moon between the two World Powers of the Cold War Era, the former Soviet Union (USSR) and the United States of America (USA).
