    Hello!

    Judging by the cockade (white background for the star), plastic rimmed visor and standard grey sweatband, I would say it is an officer service cap, not a generals one. Other than that, it really looks nice.

    Best regards

    I apologize for my wording, i actually meant "General Service" and not the rank but i put it out of context. Heres an interesting entry from "Under the Red Star" about the cap.

    Hi!

    That hat is for an Officer, not for General.
    In particular this is a soviet Motorized Rifle Officer Service Visor Hat mod. 1975-1991

    This is an Officer's cockade

    Motorized Rifle General Service Visor Cap
    This is a Generals' cockade

    Quick comparison!

    Also you can see the lateral buttoms to verify that is for an Officer!

    However it's a very beautiful officer hat, from late 1980s, in nice condition!
