M 1949 Leather Belt with Hangers for Air Force Officer Dagger, dated 1949. This type was manufactured only until 1952, at which point it was replaced by a much cheaper to produce belt in braided brown cotton. This belt is of very early Soviet manufacture, as opposed to some other belts of this type that were made in Soviet-occupied Germany as part of war reparations. Extremely scarce piece in excellent condition, complete with all of its brass hardware.
Soviet Army / Air Force officer full dress belt, circa 1980s. Very large size (Russian Size 3, will fit up to 44" waist but easily adjustable to almost any smaller size.) In near mint condition.
Army / Air Force officer full dress belt, dated 1975. Will fit up to at least 42" waist, but easily adjustable to fit smaller sizes. Excellent condition.
Army / Air Force officer full dress belt with dagger hangers, dated 1982. Unusually large size, will fit up to XXXL (50") waist, adjustable to almost any smaller size. Excellent condition. This type of belt was used very sparingly after the 1958 change in uniform regulations and is much less common than the similar naval officer belt.

This "Deluxe" model was issued to EM and NCOs serving in elite "showcase" units or deployed abroad in Warsaw Pact countries such as East Germany. Far scarcer than the standard issue Soviet EM / NCO belts in cheap ersatz leather. In very good condition.

M 1947 Waist Belt with Hangers for Navy Officer Dagger, 1947-1955. This early post-war example with "angry lions" can be a superb addition to a late 1940s - early 50s naval dagger. In very good condition.
