I was trying to find the right item to use for my first post on this forum.  I picked this up in Leningrad back in the mid-1980s, trading a knock-off version of a Walkman cassette player for it.  The coat is for a Major General in the Medical Corps.

There was a time when there was a bunch of this Soviet stuff on the market, now, not so much. I'll bet the fake Walkman crapped out decades ago, but you still have the uniform! Did you ever ID all the ribbons?

Brian, a long time ago another collector (RitchieC ?) on a different forum did identify them for me.  Unfortunately, I can't find the printout that I made of the response.
