    Unfortunately, I dont have it and the seller has only one photo available at the moment.
    It is priced really low so I just might get it.

    I also found that the same type was used by Finland and it is possible that it could be of Russian origin.
    Any ideas ?

    ok, so it is a Finnish issue carrier, but is it Finnish made or reissue from foreign stock ?

    ok, so I got the item and paid $25 for it shipped :-)
    Here are 2 photo - still looking for definite id.
    There is no markings on it other than "T" and part of a square type mark.
    Front part had light coat of black paint applied.

    Thanks !
