    Unmarked buttons mean nothing...

    It was not until early 50X that Soviet factories produced buttons that were marked.

    IMO, it is a nice surplus heavy wool tunic that was manufactured during the late 40s and/or early 50s.

    Thanks!

    Does the fabric differ very much from the fabric that was used during wartime?

    IMO, yes - but very close.

    It would be an educational experience if Dimas and/or Vadim chimed on this also...

    I've seen some war time examples made of similar cloth, but this one is postwar as Richie mentioned
