    Lightbulb Soviet Marshal embroidery quality on Visor Hats, Shoulder Boards and Uniforms

    Hello guys!

    Sometimes it happens, while doing research on Internet, to find rare pieces of the highest soviet military ranks, often shown by collectors and occasionally for sale.
    As everyone can image, high ranks items have an high value on the collectors market, and unfortunately there are a lot of fake items... many times they are surprisingly well made, so much to mislead the collector to buy them for a lot of $$$, instead of an honest price given by their poor quality

    There are many details to verify to see if these objects are original or not, one of these is the quality of the embroidery

    I would like to improve my knowledge on soviet general's and marshal's embroiderys by showing photos and spotting items around the world wide web and naturally receive your opinions




    Here is some Marshal's embroidery examples that I think are original

    #1 heres the embroidery on a named Chief Air Marshal uniform set I own (Circa 1984) the provenance is a little more questionable than some but I believe it to be good

    #3 these boards are a bit unusual as they are the post 56 republic numbers but on the M43 style board, the tunic they are on is named with good provenance and the boards may or may not be original to the tunic, possibly switched at the museum that originally housed it, but the boards themself appear to be good

    #2 while I doubt its the most uncommon it is still interesting, here's the embroidery on a Subdued generals field tunic, Air force Major General circa 1969(? button date) but more likely 70's, named but no provenance, I have also provided one photo showing the difference in embroidery between the field tunic collar and the walking out one, Interestingly too the 2 collars I photographed were for the same side however the wreath stem points in different directions on each one, no embroidery on the cuffs.
