    Default Soviet M32 Belt Buckle Brass and Steel

    I've just been doing some research and I noticed that there are 2 different buckle colours for the 2 pin belt.
    One type is brass the other looks like steel.

    I would like to know when did the 2 models enter service?

    Obviously it is almost impossible to tell from b&w photos and colourised shades vary.

    In my uniform books it mostly depicts a brass buckle during 41-45 but also the steel in 1941.

    What do you think?

    Thanks Richie, why do you think the brass is so regularly shown in the books illustrations? From the large number of contemporary brass buckles?

    That is an old reference and keep in mind that those are drawings and/or colorised B&W photos - in other words, an artist's rendition in any case...
