    Any chance of getting a front view of it?
    The enamel seems shrunked at different places or is damaged.

    hey Mat,
    I don't know anything about those items, but I do see a shrink of the enamel at 3 places.... that would make me doubt.

    Hi Matt, it is a good original 1936 pattern cap star. The size will determine what cap it is for.

    24mm for the Pilotka

    34mm for the Furashka (Visor) cap

    38mm for Senior Officers caps.

    Cheers, Ade.
