Early Soviet Air Force Leather Visor Cap

Recommended Posts

Below are photos of a black leather visor cap for the early Soviet Air Force. The red star on the upper body is an early enameled hammer and plow. The hat band sports a large sliver metal winged propeller which shows evidence of having been broken and repaired. The chin cord and slides are leather and are affixed to the cap by brass hammer and plow buttons. The interior is lined in a tan/brown cotton. There is a 1919 dated ink stamp on the lining. The sweatband appears to be made from the same material as the lining. Overall this cap shows moderate wear/tear and age.

Your comments are appreciated.
