    Default Mounted NKVD officers tunic?!

    This tunic is for sale as a tunic of a "first lieutenant of the mounted NKVD". It should be 100% WWII original!
    The tunic has the rank chevrons of a captain (kapitan) and the collar tabs of a corporal (yefreitor). The cavalry insignia on the collar tabs are fake.
    The wrong composition of the ranks is already a warning but what about the tunic itself? Is it an original RKKA M29/M35 officers tunic? The tunic has no stamps.

    I strongly believe that the gymnasterka itself is a modern repro.

    Thanks for your help (affirmative).
    Sometimes heavily worn repro can look so real. The tunic has even discolorations.
    The gymnasterka is one of a few doubtful Soviet WWII items that is online for sale at this moment in Holland; Marktplaats.nl - WW2 Russische jas (gymnastiorka) + insignes géén repro!!! - Militaria | Tweede Wereldoorlog .
    Also take a look at the nice SSch-39 helmet; Marktplaats.nl - WW2 helm Russisch model 1939 (SSH39) géén repro!!! - Militaria | Tweede Wereldoorlog .
