    Hi Matt, it will just be a makers variation. Sometimes these things do not measure out exactly as per regulations.

    Cheers, Ade.

    thanks guys! since soviet soldier pictures are not that common (I am looking for portraits but they are very few around and usually expensive), any pictorial integration of the star in wear is more than welcome

    Very nice star you have there Matt.

    As Dim has written, these were used on all sorts of soft headgear - aside from visor caps.

    Here are two images of them in use on Pilotka and Beskozirka:

    Thank you Richie! I am mainly a german militaria collector but I like history and therefore when possible I add also stuff from other countries to my collection if that is interesting to me

    Hi Matt, from what I can see the one at top right (Another 1936 pattern as evidenced by the two holes for the separate hammer & sickle) the rest all appear to be post war examples.

    Cheers, Ade.

    The bigest with safe enamel in the senter is fake, all others made of light metall are late postwar. The rest of stars could be wartime.

    I have to disagree that this star is fake.
