    M 1943 colonel's papakha winter fur cap, circa late 1940s- early 1950s.

    M 1943 colonel's papakha winter fur cap, circa late 1940s- early 1950s.

    In gray astrakhan fur, with the top in soft greenish gray wool fabric that is crossed with narrow gold bullion stripes. The liner shows manufacturer's logo of the Fur Factory #5 in Moscow. Size marked in the lower corner of the manufacturer's logo is not clearly legible but it appears to be a 56 which seems to correspond with the true size of the hat, about a US size 7. Comes with correct WW2 type hat badge in bronze plated steel and high quality "hot baked" enamel.

    Condition is very good to excellent. Shows virtually no wear to the exterior. The fur is well preserved and sound, not shedding. The wool top is free of moth damage. There is minimal amount of verdigris to the gold cross-straps which adds character and certainly not detractive. Light soiling to the liner from normal wear.

    This model was introduced during WW 2 and differs from the 1950s-60s hats of this type by having a detachable front flap held in place by a series of hook and eye fasteners (The later, 1970s-80s papakhas for Colonels also had gray top as opposed to the dull greenish colors of the earlier models and the astrakhan fur wrapped completely around the wool center in one continuous section.)
