Ever seen, but not surprising. The Soviets have a recovery policy of the various raw materials is prodigious.
I have a M43 Gymnastiorka made from cloth bags lend-lease flour.
And congratulations for this beautiful M43 Gymnastiorka !
Very nice gym and impressive how the buttons are made, i'm not surpised though ... Like Philippe say the Soviet used everything for everything ...
Thanks for the share !
A great tunic, and in such good condition too! I find just something so iconic in those buttons in regards to the WW2 soviet war machine - just making anything out of everything to get the job done. Cheers for sharing
Already seen a pentagonal kolodka made from lend lease tin cans.
I have a similar one of those buttons. I posted it some years ago in a thread named BUTTONS, BUTTONS & BUTTONS. I think it was Mike Baskette that pointed it out.
Anyway, very nice gym and those buttons make it even nicer!

Very nice tunic! These buttons reminds that Soviets used everything what they had during WWII and how bad was their supply situation.
