Were these Soviet produced Apollo-Soyuz Test Project (ASTP) novelty pins available at Kennedy Space Center back in 1975?

Perhaps the one in Cyrillic, Soyuz-Apollo, was originally available only in the USSR. They are made of metal with identical clutch pins on the back.

Found the bottom screw back item in with a group of other old Russian space pins but it doesn't really appear to be kozmoc related?

I'd love to know more about these, too. I have the top pin that you have pictured, obtained a couple years ago from another cS member, but don't know any of the history of it. It would be great to add the Soviet version, as well, at some point.

I'll be keeping an eye on this post to see if anyone knows anything about them.
