Facsimile Maxim Gorky society 1978 Letter Tony Benn (real or propoganda spoof?)

This was found in the papers of Terence Mercer, a Conservative supporter.

While we know of Maxim Gorky society in the Ukraine we are unaware of similar in the UK.

We do not know whether this was real or an attempt to discredit Benn

Real or spoof, it is an interesting example of politics at the time

This item was found in a very large collection of genuine autographs, letters and other ephemera purchased at an auction in Cardiff

Condition: Facsimile. Folded, edge creases. Slight browning
