    The images are from the american apollo program.

    It is nice that they haven't faded to red, that is what happens to most commercial slides like this.

    If there is no mold or dirt on them they are a neat item. Not necessarily rare though.

    Figtree3 What would you do if you weren't afraid?

    The title on the box, герцеговина флор, translates to Herzegovina Flor. Just found out that it is a brand of cigarettes from the Soviet Union. So the box had nothing to do with the slides.

    Russian Wikipedia entry for the cigarettes... you can translate using Google Translate: https://ru.wikipedia.org/wiki/Герцеговина_Флор
