Soviet navy belt buckle date

Recommended Posts



I know that this is very post war but is it possible to date it approximately? I'm thinking that it is probably 1960 - 1980s

At the initial introduction of the badge (order of the RVS of the USSR of January 6, 1925 No. 6), it was only copper (brass). Then, by order of the RVS of the USSR of February 21, 1925, No. 206, a detailed description of the waist belt and badge was announced. At the same time, it was said that the plaques for the RKKF floating parts are yellow (polished), and for the other parts - white (silver-plated).Plaques for war, as a rule, have worn-off corners (octagon), a hook under the right hand, the anchor paws are small and strongly curved. But on the battlefields, I found even without worn-out corners with a hook under the left arm. The photos also confirm the presence of a certain number of badges with hooks under the left arm and without worn corners. Anchor legs *upper face " almost straight. Yours is the type of 60-80 years and later, most likely the 80's.

    • Sounds great other than the Orange & Mango squash only because I prefer cran-pomegranate juice.
    • "(...) disgusting herbal concoction (...)" I took note of this description, to enrich my otherwise limited, English "Wortschatz"...
    • At work the standard indian tea such as PG tips is referred to as chimp tea. This goes back to the days when we had a Spanish girl working for us whose command of the English language was extremely limited. One lunch she said she was going to the shop could she get anything. I asked if she could get a pack of tea bags. She returned with some disgusting herbal concoction. I tried to explain what was required but without success. I then remembered PG tips had a picture of a chimpanzee on the packe
    • When I read Lapsang Souchong i decided to post something about these Tea . Many years ago I dont  know about Lapsang until I read James Michener book Centennial and the description of the savour of the Lapasang as a mix of tar and salt & smoked made me proof . It was exact ! and i liked it since then .
    • I have been known to drink Lapsang Souchong and Tea, Earl Grey, Hot... both "without pollutants". I normally have one mug of coffee in the morning, then spend the rest of the day drinking Orange & Mango squash (by the pint). Then evening comes and it's a pint, followed by red wine with dinner and sometimes a drop of Laphroaig afterwards.
