I see this is the same as posted in "Ask the reel museum", I'll post my answer here as well to keep things together.

A moderator can perhaps relocate the other one ?

A number of years ago I wrote an article about Russian spinning reels, it is in Dutch but you can translate with Google translate I believe :
http://www.vhv-daca.org/VHVblad.27.pdf
The article starts on page 30 of the above .pdf
Your reel is the KBS-671 from the KBS and KSB series made by the old Leningrad Tool Plant (now called Izmeron Factory and Leningrad is now St Petersburg of course)
I also started (years ago...) a topic on ORCA about these reels

The pics on the first pages are gone (my mistake... sorry for that) but on the last pages they are still there.

The Mitchell 324 on page 30 has an unusual stamping on the cover plate. Can't make out what it looks like. Very nice pages to drool over....

The same picture of that reel I posted here : viewtopic.php?p=5529

The stamping on the cover plate is a pentagone figure with another symbol in it. It is sort of the quality mark of the factory
