looks like it was just made yesterday .-)
I hope that was sarcasm haha
Its 1985 dated (85r) and I would assume it was a genuine piece.
Thanks douglas for the response, I'm thinking it is also; however, I just have no idea what the circle markings above left of the diamond is
Its just fine Ch. These are a very common surplus item.
Size 58. Made in a large industrial city in Belarus named Babruysk at factory "FUR FABRIKA BABRUYSK" - and as Douglas correctly stated, in 1985.
This guy is wearing something similar, and these types of Ushanka are still used, even to this day...

Looks like a legitimate piece to me and i'm sure all Brataccas meant was the ushanka is in very good condition. There must be hundreds of thousands of these unissued in warehouses!...
It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.
