They definitely are from the 80s. And they definitely represent the agenda of Soviets in the 80s. I would grab them myself if I had a chance. Really dig this kind of stuff.

This book is a terrific resource. It does not provide values, but it's a great overview of the history of Soviet film posters. It's a Taschen, so it's nicely printed, too.

I just noticed that the above link is for a new edition. I have the jumbo old edition below. I can't speak to the new edition.
