    Default Soviet Infantry Lieutenant's Shoulder Boards

    Greetings!

    I recently picked up these shoulder boards, and I'm looking for some help as to their authenticity. I'm fairly certain that the buttons and stars are not original or even correct for the period. But I still grabbed them for the low price and chance that the boards themselves could be original. Any ideas? Thanks!

    They are authentic, but Bulgarian - Boards and buttons alike - 195X for junior commanding structure.

    Stars are Soviet type for senior commanding structure (two stripes on the board), pattern of post 1954.
    .
