Soviet Military Officer Boots in black leather, c. 1980s. Size 42 in Brand-New unused condition.
M 1949 Leather Waist Belt with Hangers for Air Force Officer Dagger, dated 1950. This type was manufactured only until 1952, at which point it was replaced by a much cheaper to produce belt in braided brown cotton. Made in Soviet-occupied Germany as part of war reparations and shows a German maker mark. Extremely scarce piece in excellent condition, complete with all of its brass hardware.
Soviet Army / Air Force officer full dress belt, circa 1980s. Very large size (Russian Size 3, will fit up to 44" waist but easily adjustable to almost any smaller size.) In near mint condition.
Army / Air Force officer full dress belt, dated 1975. Will fit up to at least 42" waist, but easily adjustable to fit smaller sizes. Excellent condition.
Army / Air Force belt with dagger hangers for a full dress / parade uniform of a Full Colonel, 1960s-80s. This highly uncommon belt is in gold brocade of the same quality as Generals / Admirals belts was allowed only for full colonels, whereas lower ranking officers used belts in softer gold cloth. During much of the Cold War, Soviet Army or AF officers would use this belt with dagger attachments only for special occasions such as military parades or honor guard detail. In excellent condition.
Army / Air Force officer full dress belt with dagger hangers, dated 1982. Unusually large size, will fit up to XXXL (50") waist, adjustable to almost any smaller size. Excellent condition. This type of belt was used very sparingly after the 1958 change in uniform regulations and is much less common than the similar naval officer belt.
Army enlisted man belt in genuine leather, dated 1982. Will fit up to 44" waist, easily adjustable to smaller sizes. This "Deluxe" model was issued to EM and NCOs serving in elite "showcase" units or deployed abroad in Warsaw Pact countries such as East Germany. Far scarcer than the standard issue Soviet EM / NCO belts in cheap ersatz leather. In very good condition.
Navy officer full dress belt with dagger hangers, late-1940s - 1950s. In rich gold cloth with beige cloth lining. The quality is far superior to similar belts of later vintage. In outstanding condition.
M 1940 Waist Belt with Hangers for Navy Officer Dagger, 1940- 1947. Early, narrower pattern, featuring so-called "kind lions" on the buckles and without the larger round buckle up front. In excellent condition. Fits up to a 42" waist. This rare and desirable WW2 model is a perfect accompaniment for a wartime-dated or a very early post-war Soviet dagger.
M 1947 Waist Belt with Hangers for Navy Officer Dagger, 1947-1955. This early post-war example with "angry lions" can be a superb addition to a late 1940s - early 50s naval dagger. In very good condition.
