After WWII the Red Army transferred some of its equipment to its new ally, Bulgaria. This is how the shovel, a Russian model of the 1940s, appeared in Bulgaria. Could be dated by end of WWII - end of '40s.
On the metal part the producer stamp is clearly visible: a five-pointed star, surrounded by "Vulkan Stalin" lettering. Same stamp visible on the other shovel's side too.
Shovel's length is 52 cm/ 20,5 .
