    Army field cap, dated 1988.

    Army field cap, dated 1988.

    In olive drab cotton material. This model was at first worn by Soviet Spetznaz and commonly referred to as "Mobutu" cap, named after the Congo dictator who the Soviets attempted to destabilize and overthrow. The original cap design dates to the early 1970s and was intended for export to Africa, eventually a Soviet tropical cap was designed on its basis and the nickname remained. This cap was later widely used by Soviet soldiers in Afghanistan.

    Made in rugged cotton, very soundly stitched, with reinforced vent holes on each side and simulated leather sweat band. The liner shows clear maker stamp of the Headgear Factory in the city of Gukovo with a 1988 date of manufacture. There is also a smaller quality control stamp. The size is marked 56 (which corresponds with US size 7) but is actually a bit larger, about 57 (US 7 1/8). Size marking inconsistencies such as this were common in Soviet times.

    The hat is in Mint unissued condition. Perfect through and through, completely free of storage wear, soiling or typical moldy smell of a Soviet warehouse.
