Dear colleagues, as you know, in the Soviet Navy, the fashion was widespread for modified or completely self-made belt buckles.
I think this practice of making their own belt buckles originated during the war among sailors who ended up fighting in the land units (since their naval form was replaced by a land form) to emphasize their belonging to the navy.

The peak of fashion for himself made buckles came in the period after the war and until the early 60s. At the same time, the fashion to leave for demobilization with a buckle that differs from the statutory one, remained in the Soviet fleet for the entire period of its existence. This fashion also exists in the modern Russian navy.

few examples that I have

I think the period of the 50s. As for me, the silhouette of the ship is very much reminiscent of the cruiser of Project 68-bis (such as Sverdlov, Ordzhonikidze). Maybe made by someone from the crew of the same "Sverdlov" or "Ordzhonikidze" after the historic campaigns in England? [137
