I believe that this is an example of an NCO's parade/walking (out) tunic - Order № 005 of 1941.
I own a soldier's model (without piping) and know that an associate owns a few examples of each from assorted branches.

Hi Richie, thank you for these informations. I was surprised by the collar type M43 but I have forgotten that this type of collar exist for parade dress before 1943.
Cadets tunic. 1935+
Reworked parade M 43 enlisted tunic from the late 50's, early 60 's, just added the piping, to be the similar to the cadet's tunic M 35. The rough diagonal wool is not correct for this period

means someone just decided to raise the price for unwanted coat.
you make a mistake this series Otlichnik was abolished in 1957, not to mention also the authenticity of the jacket front port before 43 is plausible this badge is among the first in the series to be instituted : Prikaz N ° 166, 28 May 1942 the Commissioner of Defense of the USSR.
you're right! mark established May 21, 1942
and abolished 04/17/1957
