Another derivative of the hungarian rings produced in the USSR.

  • Inventor: Unknown
  • Mechanism: Moving Marbles
  • Patents: Unknown
  • Producer: USSR
  • Year: 1985
  • Original Price: $3.33 USD
  • Current Price: No Data

This puzzle resembles strongly the Figure Eight (please refer to the seperate entry): The pieces look identical and there are two opening at the sides which enable the moves. But the number of the beads make it equivalent to hungarian rings.
The embossed title translates to "Brianks rings" after the town where it was made. On the front left is and emblem of Moscow Youth festival which took place in 1985. Therefore I assume it was produced alongside the festival flowers.
The original price is based on the official exchange rate (0.6 rubels per dollar) although in socialist time this was completely theoretical. The price (in rubels) is printed on the back of the puzzle.
