Like many puzzle form the soviet era this puzzle came in many differently colored bodies. To make the collectors life more complicated there are versions which pieces have a single color and version with four different colors.
There are at least two different names: Ранжир-16 (Ranzhir-16) and Gamma.
The logo on the leaflets (images 13-14) identifies the factory where the puzzle was produced: Capacitor Plant, the city of Severo-Zadonsk.
The original price is based on the official exchange rate (0.6 rubels per dollar) although in socialist time this was completely theoretical.
If you're looking to buy, eBay is the one place you can find almost anything... if you're willing to wait for it, then pay the price!
