    Default Gymnasterka Senior Sergeant

    I posted some pictures of the buttons on this Gymnasterka and was asked to post it. Upon taking more pictures I noticed a few things. On the cuffs were I normally see two buttons, there is only one and no evidence of one ever being there. Also there was a little bit of fabric added to the side seams which I have never seen. The shoulder boards to me look good accept the senior sergeant stripe IMO looks like it might have been added on. On the back left hand side inside the uniform is a small black square and unreadable stamp. Any opinions would be great. Thanks for looking.

    Regards,
    Andrew

    Hi Andrew, as Dom says this is not an unusual feature. One of mine has the same insert.

    Cheers, Ade.

    What do you think the estimate of manufacture is?

    Hi Andrew!

    My opinion on manufacture period, and I'm going by what the fabric appears to be in your photos, and the style of what is left of the stamp: between 1950 and 1955.

    In any case, and in total agreement with Bruce, it is a nice piece.

    Regards,

    Gussets like that are a common expansion method.
