its a Pattern 1943 Parade uniform, the one before the legendary VE model, I cant help with its originality though, the fact that its a marshal of the soviet union would make me suspicious unless it had good documentation

Having discussed the photos with a friend, I have doubts about the material and cloth. If you plan to buy this piece, be very careful. It could even be movie prop.

Indeed. Items like this need good documentation! Otherwise there will always be some suspicion hanging around this uniform.

Keep in mind that Russian uniforms during the early occupation (Germany, Austria CZ etc) were also made using local tailors with foreign materials. The cap matches the tunic perfectly but without solid provenance you just don't know...

I don't think such prestigious grades would have made cut their uniform in former ennemies countries.


BTW, I don't remember of any russian source stating such kind of fabrics.

Many Soviet uniforms were made under occupation but I indeed can not think of a Marshall's uniform being made there. These are the highest military leaders!!
On top I notice there are no signs of any medals and awards being worn on the chest of this tunic. Possible of course of an un-issued uniform. But in all fairness it only raises the level of doubts.

What a constrast between heavily (maybe artificially?) tarnished embroderies and nearly brand new red velvet on the lapels and cuffs...
