Hammer and plow rather than hammer and sickel ?
I'm not familiar with this badge. Can anyone help.
Most of the budyenovki we see in North America were made for the 50th anniversary (1967) when, it seems, most of the Soviet Army dressed up like Civil War men.
Hi PG, the hammer & plough was the early Soviet cap badge and came before the well known hammer & sickle design.
It had me thinking about the plough and the stars of the Irish Citizen Army, but they didn't wear budyenovki.
The 2 budenovka in photos are copies of the model 19 and 22, either at the material of the cap, making the inside, stole ,..... sorry.
