Marshal of the Soviet Union Raincoat

Gray raincoat badged for a Marshal of the Soviet Union, with a pair of 1943 pattern large shoulderboards displaying the highest General officer rank in the Soviet Union during WWII.  The boards are the standard gold brocade backing with a large, silver embroidered star centered at the base below a large wreath surrounding a globe surmounted by the hammer and sicle.  The correct 11 bars representing the different republics are embroidered in red.  There are two bright red Generals collar patches, piped in gold and secured with gold buttons.  The coat has all buttons attached and shows some wear but no damage. Buttons are all post-war, so coat has been rebadged with a mixture of non-matching buttons of different eras.   There is some stiffness in various areas due to aging of the brittle interior waterproofing material.  This gray coat was worn with the Victory Parade uniform.

Soviet M41 Officers Gymnastyorka

A 1941 model pullover style Gymnastyorka tunic for a Lieutenant II in the Soviet army.  This tunic features the subdued color collar tabs and insignia devices, which is a very rarely encountered item.  This style of  subdued collar tab insignia were introduced in 1941 to replace the older style pattern of tabs, but in reality the older style insignia continued to be worn until 1943 when all collar tab rank insignia was replaced by shoulderboards.  The device next to the rank squares indicates the officer is in the  Pioneer or Engineers branch of service. The tunic is made from a lightweight material and has a three button front with a hooked collar closure.  There are two breast pockets with scalloped pocket flaps and both cuffs have button closures.  All buttons are intact and original.  Excellent condition.
