    Army (Land Forces) General dress visor hat, dated 1976.

    Army (Land Forces) General dress visor hat, dated 1976.

    The label shows maker's logo "43rd TsEPK Moscow" and a 76 date, as well as the Size 60 (Large, about US 7 ). All parts are original including the embroidered leather visor with felt underside. Included are a correct two-piece general's hat badge, the embroidered nubuck leather chin strap and the gold side buttons showing the Soviet state emblem. Red silk tape threads through the general's quality leather sweatband to allow a customized fit.

    This hat is in excellent, near mint condition, apparently never worn or worn just a few times. The wool fabric is extremely clean. There are no moth nips or tracking anywhere. The silk liner, label and sweat band are likewise pristine. No scuffs to the leather visor or snags to the bullion embroidery. The hat has kept its original shape perfectly - unlike many other hats of the era that have been squashed in storage or transit and now look flabby. This beautiful example is as good as they come - impossible to upgrade!

    A very uncommon hat to find is such a large size and perfect condition, this is also one of the most memorable of all Soviet hats. If the "Afghanka" boonie cap from the years in Afghanistan is the iconic Soviet soldier's hat, then this hat is its officer equivalent. Frankly, without one of these on your shelf, your collection of Cold War Soviet headgear is incomplete.
