Treasure Buried after Revolution Now Unearthed in Vladimir

A large coin and ware treasure of 91 artifacts has been found in the course of archeological excavations in Nikolo-Galeiskaya Street in Vladimir.
      Archeologists have transferred the treasure to the Vladimir-Suzdal Memorial Museum Reserve.
      First of all these are coins of Russia and RSFSR, the earliest of them dated to 1924. Among them there stands out one French coin-brooch at face value of 5 francs - it was probably a souvenir made of precious metal. The unearthed collection includes 26 womens ornaments made by Petersburg and Moscow goldsmiths and silversmiths. But mostly the treasure consists of award medals and orders.
      Some of the things had been wrapped in newspapers of the 1920s, so one can assume that the treasure was buried during that uneasy period.
