New book on Soviet Uniform Visor Cap Markings


Recommended Posts

Friends and colleagues: It is with pleasure I announce my new book: Soviet Uniform Visor Cap Markings; which documents the different manufacturers’ labels and interior markings used by Soviet industry on military and civilian uniform visor caps of the Cold War period (1945-1991). Sourcing original Soviet documentation and reflecting personal observation of hundreds of caps, this book provides the first comprehensive illustration of such markings in any language. Examples of all markings are pictured, Russian/Ukrainian text and abbreviations are explained and a full English translation of each provided. Histories of the primary headdress manufacturers, along with known dates of use for each manufacturer’s label/stamp variant are also recorded. Since interior markings are often heavily worn and largely illegible, this book will help collectors date and fully identify the origin of their caps. And because interior markings serve as a primary means of determining cap authenticity, the reader can more readily detect fakes and reproductions.

 

Anyone wanting to own a copy of this unique 93-page, 6 x 9 inch format, paperback book can either order it from my website: www.undertheredstar.com or purchase it directly from Amazon.com or one of its European counterparts (Amazon.co.uk, Amazon.it, Amazon.fr, Amazon.de and Amazon.es). Cost is $24.99 or its national equivalent. Samples of interior pages can also be seen on my website.

    • Brian: First, let me say that I always enjoy reading your blog and your "spot on" comments.  Another fine topic with such a broad expansion into so many different facets.  I had watched this a week or two ago and when reading your blog, it reminded me of this great quote.   There is a great video on the origins of "Who was Murphy in Murphy's Law"   Anyway, about mid way through this video, there is this great quote and I think it sums it up quite well to your statem

    • I recall I did the same on hot days at Old Fort York back in 1973-74 - wool uniforms, and at 90F they would let you take your backpack off.   Michael
