    Yes mate you are quite correct regarding nationality and period.

    However, this one seems to have a broken catch / hook in the centre when the catch would normally not be in the centre but in a similar position to the loop bar at the opposite edge.

    It might be a good one as I am not an authenticy expert on WWI Russian field gear but I do know that all Russian and Soviet Russian militaria is heavily faked to a very high standard when it comes to weathering etc so I would do some research.

    Regards
