Soviet Naval Infantry Wwii Belt Buckle - Restored:
Bought in 10 years ago for reenactment. Wartime brass badge, recovered from the field somewhere in the Baltic countries. Patina removed by boiling in vinegar, then surface was polished to remove the reddish taint . Needs further polishing to remove scratches, though in wartime they wouldn't be polished shiny. This buckle wear and tear is suggestive of combat use. One of the hooks broke but a replacement wire can be soldered. It can be worn with a belt as it is.I assume the buyer knows more than I do about these items, if not here's a good start
