Here they are:
The size of the label is aproximately 1/4th inch by 3/4th's inch and on the larger piece is is hand written on cloth. On the bar with fusion crust cut from a large 82 Kg individual it is typed "No. 1628/6" on the same cloth tape.
I got these from Krinov in 1971 and I still have the original packing. It is quite amazing that he would have given me these gratis, and at a time when the US and the CCCP were at the height of the cold war.
