Everyone knows Hungarian Globe - http://www.twistypuzzles.com/cgi-bin/puzzle.cgi?pkey=574.

Did you know that exists Soviet Globe?

Look at these two Globe alongside each other.
In size they are absolutely identical. But the picture is not the same.
The continents which are drawn on the Soviet globe, more than Hungarian. India extends up to equator.
Antarctica is twice the size, Australia shifted, Atlantic Ocean expanded.
Both Globes no information about the manufacturer.
The Soviet Globe plastic base black.

Information from the seller about the Soviet Globe:
"Puzzle received from a woman 65 years. She claims that this puzzle made ​​one Penza (city ​​in the USSR) company on request from Moscow for a 1980 Olympics."

Thank you for sharing this.
I find it impressive that in the 21st century many till then unknown 80's puzzles are discovered.
