The exact year is so far unknown. Therefore is the given year an upper bound.
The logo is identical to the soviet 3x3x3 which was produced in PRODUCTION ASSOCIATION "HIMPRODUKT" - Aksai Rostov region.
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 package.
