Space pin made in the Soviet Union about Soyuz 3. The text on the pin reads:”Soyuz 3″ and “G.T. Beregovoy”. Soyuz 3 was a spaceflight mission launched by the Soviet Union on 26 October 1968. Flown by Georgy Beregovoy, the Soyuz spacecraft completed 81 orbits over four days.
The 47-year-old Beregovoy was a decorated World War II flying ace and the oldest person to go into space up to that time. The mission achieved the first Russian space rendezvous with the uncrewed Soyuz 2, but failed to achieve a planned docking of the two craft.
