    Really nice !

    I was sure that some winter stuff soviet made was "captured" by Germans.

    It certainly was: orders went out that captured Soviet Ushankas were not to be worn at home on leave.

    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Cool Thread...I clearly recall my German Oma telling me that my Grandfather came back from the war wearing one, ("Wie'n Russ'"/"Like a Russian")...
    I looked all over the basement for it, but it was already gone, lol...
    cheers, Glenn

    Interesting photo thanks for linking !
    Whoever captured this sure took good care of it, If I recall correctly, the seller I bought this from acquired it in Germany so i'd bet it's a vet bringback.
    I read on here Samoilova was in Leningrad region, I wonder if it was captured on that front? Can only guess

    Cut from a trapezoid I assume? I used to own one with metal insignia - Heer eagle and the cockarde less the wreath.

    I just took a quick peak and you can see the remnant of green fabric around the edges of the cockade, Left from when it was cut out i'm sure
