Crimean War 1853-1856 medal


Here is one nice Imperial Russia award from Crimean war period. Its looks like its noncombatant one - dark bronze or is it impossible to say? Is it correct that there was 1 465 700 light bronze medals for combatants and 150 000 dark bronze medals for noncombatants and suporters?

M1955 colonel of medical service parade uniform

Excellent condition and super rare parade uniform of a medical branch colonel, model 1955. These uniforms are utterly rare in these days and this one is no exception. The uniform has no flaws or damages at all; no damage to the lining or the metal details. The collar features leaves and medical insignias as per regulations. The visor cap is in excellent condition with the M/55 cap wreath as well with dark green band for medical troops.
The uniform has traces from three screwback awards on the left side and a bar for 6 medals on the right side. The belt has hangers for a dagger and is different from the later belts as it has golden thread wowen into the garment.

The pockets on the inside of the jacket has zippers.

The size of the uniform is 50-52 (M-L / 40-42) and the visor cap is 57.
