    Red Army Enlisted Man or NCO pilotka side cap, early 1940s.

    Red Army Enlisted Man or NCO pilotka side cap, early 1940s.

    In olive drab wool gabardine. The cap star is WW2 style, in steel with bronze finish and enamel. Liner is in light olive green cotton drill fabric. The liner shows maker mark of the workshop Plamya Sotsializma ("Flame of Socialism") in the village of Knyaginino, Gorky Region; there are also a quality control stamp and size stamp 55 (about US size 6 7/8 - Small). Note the absence of the sweat band as typical of very early EM pilotkas.

    In good overall condition, very respectable for a Soviet EM hat of WW2 vintage. The outer shell is generally in decent shape, although it has a number of small moth holes. The color is nice and uniform, without soiling or significant discoloration spots. There are no rips or other major damage. The liner is sound and overall clean, with just normal wear and minimal soiling.

    Any Soviet enlisted man's hats of WW2 era were usually worn by their original owners long after the return from the war. Very few have survived in anything like collectible condition. Those from the early war or pre-war period were always hard to find, and they've become especially scarce and sought after in recent years.
