    Hello,

    The little stars are subdued field use for the forage cap, panama slouch hat or the visor cap with earflps, usually 70 or 80 vintage.

    The strap is not faked is late 80 quality officers type. What is incorrect is the matching with other ranks star-and-wreath insignia.

    You can either replace the chinstrap for a black celluloid one either you can replace the insignia with an officers cockade.

    These compositions were -and are common- with caps offered to tourists
    Very interesting. I'll probably leave it as-is, but I might just look for an original chinstrap. Thanks for the info!

    nice visor here is my one and only soviet era visor ,roll down the liner band ,you might find another stamp as i did
    Your PPSh makes you visor cap even cooler

    I'll look for the stamp, but I'm always relunctant to over-manipulate memorabilia.

    Another ebay posting (sorry I cannot add pics now, only the listings) with an Ukrainian cap with same chinstrap:

    As I pointed out before, it seems fairly common to use such chinstraps there.

    Here is another one:

    Russian Soviet Hat Officer Army Cap Uniform USSR Tank Force Military Original | eBay

    Very typical soviet manufacture, although dated 1992.

    As I said before all examples I have seen so far were manufactured in UA during the very late 80s - early 90s

    Cheer, Ade.

    Default MVD Generals Hat

    Guys:
    I picked this hat up, but don't know if it's real. Any help would be greatly appreciated as I am new to this.
    Inside the hat it has blue/green satin material. Black velvet material lines the underside of the visor.
    The chin strap appears to be made out of leather. The band is more maroon, not red.
    Thanks
