    Does anyone know the actual dimensions of the large cockade, as used on the model 1915 Adrian?

    So where can I look for a reproduction of this red star/hammer/sickle helmet cockarde? I've looked online for months...not even sites in the former Soviet Union can help me.

    IMO, there is a reproduction star on the helmet pictured above.

    These were a big deal on eBay for quite a few years back in the 2000s.

    They arose like flies and quickly died off....

    Register at forum www.russiamilitaria.com and inquire about your wish for info. I could almost swear that I saw I link to a website that offers reproduction insignia such as this referred to there in recent years.

    Make sure your post is in Russian - BTW.

    Thank you RichieC. Your info is about the same as I got from vendors in Ukraine and the Czech Republic with whom I've done business ... "I know reproductions were made; used to see them but it's been a couple of years now". I'll try russia.militaria.com as you suggest. Luckily I did have a couple of years of Russian in high school, and with the help of a translator and a couple of language/vocabulary books can usually manage simple communications.

    I was quite convinced this was an original example with star.
    Please do explain the difference between an original and a reproduction star.
    Maybe with some photographic detail.

    IMO, the reproduction stars are constructed from stamped thin gauge brass, still bright, with a "plastic" looking lacquer type finish.

    Again - IMO - The star that adorns the example pictured above: it seems to be one of these.

    Kindly compare to the two examples belonging to a colleague that I show here - one in steel/tin, and one in brass:
