    Question My first gymnasterka-M43 pocketless version. Real or fake?

    Hi all!
    This is my first post on this forum and I'd like to show my first gymnasterka. I've never had any experience with soviet militaria before. I really need your help with this one-M43 pocketless version. I heard that this is wartime manufacture but Im not sure if it's original or not. For me it looks quite nice. Fabric has lots of stains, it also has strong and very characteristic smell of old fabric. Front buttons are steel painted with green paint. Shoulder buttons for pogoni are a bit strange, these are large, aluminium buttons painted with dark-green paint, very similar to the buttons used for shynel coat IMO. What do you think about this one?
