    Navy sailor Beskozyrka "Donald Duck" cap, dated 1987.

    Navy sailor Beskozyrka "Donald Duck" cap, dated 1987.

    In black wool with white piping. The cap tally which reads Voenno-Morskoy Flot ("Navy") instead of the usual identification of the fleet, flotilla or naval school. Cap tallies of this type were worn by sailors on honor guard detail, staff of the naval headquarters, or sailors performing special duties which meant that they reported directly to the central command of the Soviet Navy. The sweat diamond is of Zarya Garment Factory in the city of Vladivostok, a small and very uncommon manufacturer. There is a 1987 date of manufacture on the sweat diamond. The liner is marked Size 55 (Small, about US size 6 ) and also shows unit inventory stamp with a IX -88 date. It is interesting to see that the hat badge is bent in a peculiar manner (contrary to regulations) as was often done by seasoned NCOs or conscripted sailors in the last months of their stint to show off "special" status.

    In very good to excellent condition. Shows just some storage age and dust that will clean up nicely. There is minor wear to the sweat band that remains sound, and some rust stains to the liner that are not too detractive.

    A very interesting Beskozyrka by a rarely seen maker!
