    M 1931 NKVD Border Guard Budyonovka Cloth Helmet, dated 1932.

    M 1931 NKVD Border Guard Budyonovka Cloth Helmet, dated 1932.

    In steel gray wool felt, with a green cloth star on the front designating Border Guards. Includes the appropriate hat badge, an early model in bronze-plated steel and nice quality enamel, with superimposed hammer & sickle emblem. There are two original black buttons up front and two matching black buttons for connecting the neck flaps when they are unfolded. The cotton liner shows two manufacturer's stamp of the Volodarskogo Factory in the city of Samara and a larger quality control stamp with a clearly visible 1932 date (interestingly, the city of Samara was renamed Kuybyshev in 1935, so this particular factory mark could not appear on anything made later on.) About a size 57 (approximately US 7 1/8 - Medium).

    In superb, near mint condition - probably never worn and definitely the best example of a pre-WW2 Budyonovka we have seen. Both the interior and exterior are immaculately clean. There are none of the usual moth bites or tracks visible anywhere on the grey wool exterior or the green star. The quilted liner is likewise perfect, completely free of visible wear. The stamps are extremely well preserved. This Budyonovka is literally a perfect, museum quality piece and in our opinion, cannot be upgraded for condition.
