Soviet navy captain I rank
M1969 daily dress uniform

Well kept, lightly worn 1970s through 1980s wool blend daily uniform of a navy captain Ist rank of the Soviet navy. The set consist of tunic, trousers and visor cap. The trousers are of later manufacture than the tunic, yet matching the tunic style- and modelwise.

The shoulderboards hold three large metal stars on black backing with black piping for the rank of captain Ist rank, equal to a colonel. On the sleeves are the correct wide rank stripes, sewn-on, somewhat oxidized, matching the rank on the shoulder boards. The buttons are brass type with separate painted back, seemingly dated to the 1970s. The ribbon bar is pinback type with separately attached ribbons including the Order of the October Revolution, Order of the Red Star, Medal for combat service, a number of anniversary awards and all three classes of the irreproachable service medals. The collar decorations are actually not included in the regulations for this type of uniform but may be an addition actually made by this very senior officer to further indicate rank and status. On the wearers right side of the uniform is a brass badge for Long journey by sea and a graduation badge from a naval academy.

The visor cap of this set is a size 56 parade cap with plastic visor and golden decorations and cord. The cap is in very good condition. The shape of the cap resembles a more german style but has correct 1980s makers mark.

Overall, the uniform set is in very good condition and shows only light wear. The size for the tunic is US42-44 or EUR54 and the visor cap is 56.
