Great items, i specially like the NKVD colonels mundir!
The tabs on the overcoat is not good IMO

Yes that is a really nice item for sure. It's not mine, however i have a Lieutenant Mundir. Not in as good condition as this one, but also cheaper.
As a matter of interest, did the shopkeeper of this 'Secret' establishment look like this, and appeared before you 'As if by magic'.......

It's a shop located underneath another shop, having nothing to do with WW2 collectibles. You would never find this shop unless you know it's there. It's of course not a secret shop and Moscow have quite a few of these, located the strangest places. You put a good smile on my face there Ned As for the shopkeeper it was more something with Vodka and so on. A strange place it was indeed.
The collar tabs on the shinel (overcoat) are correct. They are a later style, but are correct for the post GPW era.
As for re-enacting, my unit does not require any of our troops to remove, or replace this square style.
The tabs, IMO, are reproductions - hence Dim's comment - and are pre-1943 order...
Fellow collectors are NOT adversaries to be bested...
