Simple question: Is this collection of minerals from the USSR worth anything, now that the USSR no longer exists under that name? The samples or specimens seem fairly commonplace, but the box with Russian writing and whatnot struck me as a curiosity... I'm not a big fan of eBay or C/L, so where else might I sell this? At the local swap meet? I attach photos for clarity, though the box pics may be upside down, lol. Thanks in advance for any & all replies... Cheers! :smt002

That is the kind of starter collection that you buy a kid for a few dollars when at a rock show, or traveling from a tourist shop.

Almost zero value.
