No expert in Soviet matters (was only with the 2nd Guards for a few years before my interest in Poland 1939 took over) but don't forget that the Red Army would use anything that was useful, even if it belonged to someone else! The buttons could have been 'taken' from a German soldier or even a supply dump?

"well faded" and "pebble buttons" are two things you find with reenactors,

The dye fades really easily and quickly to almost white (so you don't need to have spent 2 years at the front for a faded look - probably a handful of weekends in one year!) and the Soviet buttons fall off all of the time, so once again, something you'll see a lot with us.

I've got a thing at the back of my mind that the pockets are a postwar thing.

They were still making these in the 70's btw, I think mine is dated 1972. There is a white sewn in label on the inside, but again whether its still there or readable is a good question - usually not and once again that its missing or unreadable means nothing in itself!

The Telog is issued in the winter and taken back in the summer dress issue mostly to be turned into cotton waste, so a well faded one could easily be from a Re-enactors multiple yearly use of an unissued garment.
