State Prosecution Uniform

Hello to everyone!

A time ago, I found an uniform on E that I posted in the eBay jokes (post #551). But Nack (thanks!) wrote it looked like a legal uniform... After that, I fond it again a few minutes before the auction end, and got it for $10! :)

When I received it, I was amazed that the medal was genuine, but that the uniform was a real mix: the shoulders boards were screwed in the tunic! :banghead

So here are pictures of what this uniform looks like now...

And now I have some questions for the uniforms experts:

- what is this uniform exactly, civilian legal? military legal?...
- what the rank?
- is it complete?
- is it a parade? walking-out or service uniform?
- what would be the cap matching this uniform? the one shown on the picture?

Thanks a lot for your help!

Wow--$10 is a steal! Congrats! It's "civillian" legal, I think service. As to rank, I'm not sure--I've never found any english-language material on this stuff. Are the buttons like a general's--with the state seal? It's not common stuff. I'm really jealous--this is right up my alley.

The hat is the right branch and what not, but I'm not sure if it goes with the tunic or not. Its a cool hat on its own, though!

tunic

Very nice buy! Its civilian state prosecution like stated, I think for a jr. officer though i do not have a rank table for this organization. Glad you took the dumb boards and medals off it; you gained by subtracting.

Andreas, thanks for the link!
Nack and Doug, thanks for your comments!

Unfortunately, the cap is not mine, I found this picture on a site related to soviet caps.

The buttons are in deed the type for generals, with the state emblem, dated 1987.

Inside the tunic, there is a factory tag, from Minsk.

There are green lines on the tunic and trousers, is there any reason?

Here are two other pictures, bad quality... :( but still good for information

"The office of the Soviet Procuracy served as the public prosecutor within the Soviet legal system. Although formed within the USSR in 1924, it took its final form in 1936, when all republic Procurators and their subordinates were placed under the direct control of the USSR Procurator-General. The Procuracy was charged with insuring the "correct and uniform application of the laws of the USSR". This included a responsibility to review all actions taken by government ministries (note - it did not extend necessarily to Communist Party organizations!). However, the most common "face" of the Procuracy was to serve as state prosecutor in criminal court cases. In the case of the defendant not having his/her own lawyer, the Procuracy would also provide the defense attorney! Supposedly, its approval was required before anyone was arrested - even by the NKVD/MVD - although this was clearly not always followed. Pre-trial investigations were also the responsibility of the Procuracy as was the requirement to investigate any legal "complaints" from citizens or reviews of court findings."

"Although the uniforms of this service are very poorly described, based on my research this 1990-dated cap probably was worn by a senior (but not highest grade) official - with a rank of "Senior Councilor of Justice". The crown is dark blue piped in medium green wool, while the band is black velvet. As you can see on the cap(s) below, the uniform colors used by the Procuracy apparently changed over time. The two-piece emblem is the last version in use since the mid-1960's and is surrounded by an embroidered gold wreath sewn onto a dark blue backing and then onto the band. It is this wreath that identifies the cap as a senior official's (but not a "highest" official who had additional embroidery on the band and visor). The gold cords are held in place by general-style buttons with the great seal of the USSR. The crown is saddle shaped while the visor is black plastic."
