Rugs are 4-5ft, except the lenin-marx-engels (6ft) ....no military personalities yet.

That is quite a collection you have there. Thank you for posting the different examples you have acquired. I think somewhere I have at least one example, maybe two. One that comes to mind is Volksmarine. Will have to search them out, and see how they are faring. Haven't looked at them in many, many years now.

Excuse my ignorance, but how common were these? Were they given as an award or available to anyone?

Great collection, hard to display, but wonderful pieces! Am I right in assuming these would have been wall hung? Or walked on as a normal rug? That would seem a little strange considering some show the faces of Personalities...
