    Default Soviet Wool Coat Identification Help

    Hi,

    I am a novice collector and this is the first Soviet item I have ever acquired. I have literally no clue what I have here of if this piece is real or fantasy. Any help? Thanks in advance. Let me know if you need any more pictures, etc.

    Thanks,
    Phil

    don't know anything regarding the jacket, but I think the Lenin badges were tourist pieces you could buy in Russia in the soviet 1970s period and a bit later.

    It's a souvenir piece that you can find at any ex-Eastern Block country. They add all kinds of badges etc to cheap surplus items to make them appealing to tourists. The attached badges and sewn on hammer & sickle are just from the makers imagination, the shinel is original.

    Total fantasy item.

    I believe saw this listed on eBay for a painful amount of money from a seller here in the USA. Something in the range of $500.00.

    I truly hope you did not pay even 10% of that...
    .

    Fellow collectors are NOT adversaries to be bested...

    You have to be kidding me with that price Richie.
