Continuing the Russian Airforce theme!

Russian capture/property stamp...Can somebody translate?
It is dated 194__ (fill in the blank!)

Now the outside!
It was restored by me, as it came with non matching Russian + Pebbled German buttons
and lacking the shoulderstraps... (Now ranked as a Russian Airforce Lieutenant)

Note stand up Russian collar modification, upper chest pockets redone, no pleats,
lower pockets removed to make it look like a M43 Russian Kitel uniform.
The RAD labor uniform wool color works for Russian uniforms!

That's the Mosfilm marking. Probably part of the big shipment of German uniforms from Berlin in 1946 to Mosfilm. Then at some point re-purposed to a Soviet outfit for a film.

Nutmeg, yes indeed it is identically marked...So for sure a studio stamp...Studio used!
Still cool this Russian connection (and conversion)! Out of curiosity what kind of uniform got your stamp ?
