    Default Russian great coat age?

    Morning all. Iíve just purchased this Russian great coat / Shinel. Iím aware the badges are soviet era for communications troop but can any of you fine folks age the coat for me? I know the Russians used lots of post war stock up into the 70ís.

    Many thanks in advance.

    Also with regards to the 5 soviet era buttons on the front, were these the norm for this era? Iíve seen some pics of these coats online with the buttons and some without. The imperial war museum has a coat with them.
