    All of these sets are actually Bulgarian If I am not mistaken, all from the 1950s before the Bulgarians diverged away from Stalinist era uniforms in the 1960s

    I had a look online and found one set to be coastal artillery but the others I can only see the rank and not the corps which they came from. It seems Bulgarian sets have a lion on the button however these have bakerlite soviet stars so I am confused.

    The shoulder epaulettes and ranks of the Bulgarian army are based on those of the Russian army. This was already the case at the time of the Bulgarian Tsarist army before 1944.
    The shoulder epaulettes and collar insignia are those of the Bulgarian People's Army from the period 1950-1990; Category:Rank insignia of Bulgarian People's Army (1950-1990) - Wikimedia Commons .
    The uniform buttons of the Bulgarian People's Army bore a communist star. After 1990, the lion was reintroduced on the uniform buttons. The lion is a Bulgarian national symbol and is also in the national coat of arms.
    I do have the idea that the sets of shoulder epaulettes/collar tabs are composed. Just look at the stars (service dress and field uniform).
    The shoulder epaulettes for the service dress have covered buttons for the field uniform.
    On Ebay there is someone from Bulgaria who sells uniforms of the Bulgarian People's Army. Take a look at his advertisements to get an impression of the uniforms of the Bulgarian People's Army; Bulgarian Army soldier Cold War Greatcoat winter wool Uniform Border guards | eBay .
