We all have a fairly good idea of what Russian spacesuits and spacesuit parts such as Orlan and Sokol gloves are worth once they reach the collectors' market.

However, I have absolutely no clue as to their values right out of the Zvezda factory.

Millions and millions must have been invested just to produce a few hundred suits; the cost per unit should be quite high.

Does anyone have any info?

Thank you Philip. I've been to their website before. Most of the links are dead, they don't give any pricing information (understandably) and they never replied to my E-Mail.

Try the authors of the book "Russian Spacesuits," Ingmar Skoog and Isaac Abramov. You can find the book on Amazon.co.uk (no import tax when shipped from the UK) with ISBN 978-1852337322.

Fantastic, merci beaucoup Philip! It looks like a wonderful book, I had no idea such a resource existed. I've just ordered it (along with Dwight's "Live TV from the Moon"). Cheers.
