    Default Soviet WWII Belt?

    Hi all, I'm thinking about buying this belt.

    Is it WWII or post war?

    Here is a photo of Roza Shanina wearing one that looks identical to this one.

    Model of 1932 - made postwar until 1947 I believe.

    From the images, it appears the leather has been treated and the thread is an orange colour.

    Is that correct?

    Your right, the thread does look kinda orange.
    Can someone give me some links to sites that sell original Russian stuff?

    I know all the sites that sell German stuff but I just started collecting Russian.

    If so, it may be a modern marriage of an older buckle on a 60s thru 90s belt. A common presentation/offering that I have come across before - on more than one occasion...

    One of our sponsors: Original WW2 German militaria, WW2 Red Army militaria, WW2 Soviet militaria and more... is a reliable source - and this also, but limited: Collect Russia Collect Russia Soviet Russian

    Really? wow, I didn't know Russian stuff was faked like German stuff.

    Thanks for the links : )

    Depending on what type of oil was used to treat the leather, it could be "correct". When I use certain brands of Neatsfoot oil on leather, sewn with all natural cotton thread, the thread does turn an orangey color, so I would not necessarily say that is wrong.
