Hello, I would like to show a ww2 period Russian officers belt I recently found and acquired. I like it. Thanks to the people of this forum who are generous with helpful information from their experiences. Thanks to this forum and the people, I can buy with confidence. The buckle appears to be solid brass. There is some type of sticky substance on the buckle like maybe a leather conditioner, perhaps to preserve it. Any opinions about this? I am trying to put together a ww2 period RKKA pilot. I hope to find a correct ww2 period Russian airforce gymnastiorka to go with it. And I am also looking for any ww2 period Russian pilot equipment like the orange m38 goggles. Thanks.
