I have a gold astronaut Snoopy pin that I have no information about. I got it in a lot of Russian space pins. Has anyone seen one of these before or have any information they can share? It is about two times the size of a regular NASA Silver Snoopy pin.

Thanks for the ebay link! Too bad there is no history of the pin in the ad description...

If that's the going rate, I got mine for a steal! Too bad I've been wearing it and some of the finish has worn off...

I've yet to see any evidence linking these pins to NASA. Doesn't mean there is no link but as far as I know it's just a piece of gold-tone costume jewellery.
