    Army (Land Forces) general walking-out dress visor hat, dated 1970.

    Army (Land Forces) general walking-out dress visor hat, dated 1970.

    In light gray wool gabardine with red piping and band, gold embroidery on the band, and gold chin cord. The crown is of relatively early style, not as small as the hats from the 50s-60s, but noticeably smaller than the oversized crowns of the generals hats from the 80s. The visor is in hard plastic with polished top and matte underside, as correct for the hats of early vintage. The sweat label shows the early TSP Moscow maker's mark, a 70 date of manufacture and a size 57 (approx. US size 7). Black silk tape threads through the general's quality leather sweatband to allow a customized fit.

    The hat is in very good overall condition. Unlike vast majority of hats of this vintage, it is free of any significant mothing. At close examination, there are a few f light scuffs to the nap of the wool of the crown which may be moth trackings, but there are certainly no moth nips or holes. The crown also has some tiny spots that may clean off nicely and are not very noticeable at any rate. There is no significant soiling or big stains to the exterior, while the liner and sweat band are almost immaculately clean. The overall shape has been preserved quite well. Overall, this is a very attractive early example of the less common general's hat for the walking-out dress uniform.
