In napped royal blue wool with magenta band and piping. The liner shows clear Moscow "23rd Anniversary of the October" Factory stamp. There are additional quality control stamps to the underside of the band and on the liner towards the back. Approx. size 57 / 58 (should fit US size 7 1/8 - 7 ).

In very good condition. The crown is remarkably well preserved having only a few very small moth bites in the back that are not too detractive or even very noticeable (the hat has undergone our routine freezer treatment and is completely free of active moth problem). The exterior of the hat is free of stains or soiling and shows only very minimal wear to the nap of the wool. The chinstrap is original and although it shows wear to the edges, still intact and not too stiff. The visor has minor scuffs only, no cracks or excessive wear. The liner and sweatband have not been refitted (as is often the case) and are immaculately clean.

Featuring distinctive square visor and bright royal blue crown, this hat is very similar to NKVD / MGB hats of WW2 and immediate post-war years, the main difference being the color of its piping which is magenta rather than crimson. This model was in use for only a few years, from 1952 until the change in MVD uniform code in 1956 (with the introduction of the new MVD officer dress hat with grey crown.)
