I came across this belt buckle while traveling through Russia and have yet to see another like it. It was given during the WWII as a medal of excellence to an officer in the Russian Air Force. Definitely a rare military item great for ay collector or just a cool piece to wear.

The buckle is made of brass and has a raised crest enameled in navy, baby blue, red and white. In the center is the Soviet hammer and sickle surrounded by the traditional red Russian starburst. There are gold accents throughout, including the winged symbol for the Russian Air Force in the lower center. It is in good vintage condition, with a small crackle in the white enamel in the top left near two of the letters.

The translation of the Russian Cyrillic type in the crest is:

отпичник =
BBC = VVS or Voenno-Vozdushnye Sily (literally, "Military Air Forces")

Dimensions:
+ fits a belt up to 1 3/4" wide
+ 3" wide
+ 2 1/16" tall

Thanks for looking!
