    Appears to be 1992 production with a 70s/80s Soviet EM buckle affixed.

    Thanks Richie, I did wonder if that was a date but thought it must be something else since it was a Soviet buckle. I didn't even consider the chance the buckle didn't belong.

    Does not mean the buckle does not belong...

    I'm sure that the Russian, and the newly "liberated" Ukrainian, etc, and etc armies did not rush out and have their "own" buckles made during those post 1991 years of havoc.

    I would think that there were more important things to give attention to at that time - like dividing up weaponry, ships, & etc, and deciding what to do with all those nuclear warhead carrying SRBMs, MRBMs, ICBMS, and SLBMs that were spread throughout those former fifteen "republics"...

    As a matter of fact, the old Soviet naval buckles, as well as the M69 wreath/star cockardes are still in use by some Russian Federation forces... I have seen it first hand. Both still in use by the Russian Black Sea fleet based to this day in Sevastopol...

    Very good point about priorities at the time. I did not know it was still in use in some places either, thanks!
