It is true that a spirit that I share ! And I guess all soviet passionate or collector approve this, it's hard to be sure sometime especially for items during the war, you can really see sometimes alot of "weird" thing ... manufactory made or made by the soldier/officer, sort of thing who are "normally" not allowed by the rules at this time
Thanks for that little story too !
Many thanks for your advice ! (and nice pilotka by the way !)
I can now really put an period era on this pilotka so ... pre-war or wartime (maybe even 1946-47) perfect for me I can use it for a little project that you know ...
Just have to find a little star that's not a really hard part, thankfully !
Thanks to all who contribute to this thread in any case, very interesting thread and I hope will help someone with the same "problem" one day
