    Default Relic Steel Vest. Complete!

    Hello guys,

    Here is a relic condition "bullet proof" Soviet steel vest from WW2. Found in Smolensk. As i understand special Engineer Units were equipped with these vest. It's in quite good condition. Still got a bit of paint on it. Nothing is missing except from the padding and straps. The straps on this vest is of course not original to the vest

    Not an everyday find indeed! I hope you like it.

    I don't mind at all guys Note the right shoulder is kept free for a rifle butt stock. At first i thought it was broken off.
