    Default WW2 Soviet Button and Pin

    Hi,

    Thanks,
    Phil

    The star-cockarde is a common 38MM M36 type made until 1939 for use with various types of soft headgear - and was still used well through the war and even afterwards.

    The button is also a common U.S. made type for the Soviet Union under the Lend-Lease program. There were a few other American manufacturers that made buttons - in metal and celluloid.

    There exists many threads here on the star-cockardes - Also, there is a comprehensive button thread lurking about here somewhere...
