    Thanks a lot Gary! Bought them from a fleamarket here in Finland, the seller (who wasnt a specialist) maintained they could be part of U.S aid to Finland in the so called "winter war" agains Russia 1939-1940. I have my doubts about that but they show alot of wear but no breaks. Love them worn but not torn. Price was 100 euros.
