How to buy several cards?

When the Soviet regime collapsed in the beginning of the nineties, communist party membership cards were often destroyed, either by their owner or by the office itself. Some remain though, and here are some of these communist party membership cards. 

There were two sorts of membership cards : the ones that the members kept with them, and the ones that were kept in the offices, to keep a trace of each member. These ones are the office cards.

I have made a few researches about them and found that the line on the top of the card means “workers of the world unite !”, then the line under it means “Communist Party of the Soviet Union”, then “Registration Card Membership“, followed by the initials of the Communist Party Soviet Union, then you can see the number, and then the name of the member. The abbreviation on the bottom of the document means “Central Committee of the Communist Party of the Soviet Union”.

These cards have 24 pages each, where you can first find some information about the card holder, like for example whether this person received honorary titles and government awards, then seven pages list all the jobs the person has had since he/she began to work (all seven pages are not always full), records of party collection (as translated), records of other changes, and then finally, the registration of all the person's movements within the communist party of the Soviet Union. When this part is filled in the card, there are some black ink stamps and written mentions.

All cards are different regarding the number and nature of written mentions, number of stamps etc. Please ask for more details for the card(s) you are interested in.

Some of these cards were issued in the seventies, and some in the eighties.

Each one is unique.

All these cards belonged to Ukrainian people, except one which belonged to a Russian man.

All these cards still have their original photographs.

All cards are in good or very good condition.
