Re: OPW II classe - n. 460195

Rocketscientist,

It is probably due to a mix of impurities and micro bubbles, at a time when large numbers of this order were required.

Re: 1° DIVISA

Hi lupo78,

This is a late-period soviet artillery captain service uniform.
Check the exact date on the back of the buttons on the jacket. It will be the last two digits of the year of production.
The cap is dated 1991.

So it is more a veteran association award?
Absolutely, nothing official in that one.

Re: Wartime caps: identification

Seb, The way you wrote it, it sounds rather differently: -"the first one is a M55 with a square visor added for cinema, with internal stamp as a proof.": Yes, M55 no argument -"the third one is conceived to look like a field M41: it would be a M59 basis with a new visor and a M39 star.": so, here al...

Re: Wartime caps: identification

No, 3 fake caps, as he indicated, made from later material to look like older models.
True, the wording of the second one is off. It should be "1950's cap with changed visor to make it look like an M35".

Re: Wartime caps: identification

Seb,

I am somewhat lost with your explanations: Are the descriptions HIS or YOURS?
I agree that all 3 caps are "improved" post-war specimens, along the lines of the explanations you wrote above.
And the last one has a splendid fake stamp [110.gif

Re: Piatto decorativo-quadretto sportivo-portasigarette

Hi cive05,

The plate is a simple souvenir from Kiev. The decor is made from dried straw.
The Hockey plate is a souvenir made for the 1979 Hockey World Championship.
The cigarette case is a modern item for tourists and has no interest whatsoever.

Strange mintmark and unconventional handwriting. Can you get better pictures of that piece, including enlargements?

Re: Distintivi per Specialista nell MVD

Guys,

According to the information on the page shown by Sergio, it should be the other type of badge, without the wings.

Re: Onorevole pilota collaudatore

I have never observed a single instance of the round raised MMD mintmark on any genuine air title (Military Pilot, Military Navigator, Civilian Pilot, Civilian Navigator, Military Test Pilot, Military test Navigator).

Re: Onorevole pilota collaudatore

Guys,

As far as I know, the round MMD mintmark has never been stamped, it was always struck in relief.
So IMO, that is one terminal argument against this badge.

I don't like it, but suspensions are not my forte.

Re: ALFABETO CIRILLICO e aiuto per Traduzioni. (Translation HELP)

Ruiz,

It may also be due to the date of award (the booklet looks quite recent). If it is post-WW2, it will not be available on Pomyat Naroda.
