Seldom seen daily dress uniform for a captain III rank (kapitan tret'yevo ranga) within the KGB Naval borderguards. The uniform has buttons dated '86' and is a M1969 model double breasted uniform. The shoulder boards have the borderguard green piping and one large metal star for the rank of captain III degree, equal to a major. The sleeves has sewn-on rank patches with three stripes, correct for the rank. The tunic is made from fine wool and the lining is in excellent condition, there are a few small spots from wear but nothing that distracts from the overall appearance and condition of the tunic.
The ribbon bar contains a total of 8 awards for a 25 year career within the ranks, including the medal "For veteran serviceman". On the wearers right is an white graduation rhombus from the Popov Highest Naval Academy for Radio and Electronic Specialists (VVMURE im. A.S. Popova) in Leningrad.
The size of the uniform is about size 52-54 russian or 42US. As the cap and trousers used for this uniform would be standard navy pieces, the completion of the uniform should be less of a challenge to the collector.
