An old Ushanka.

Article about: I understand Gus... Also, I see that this was an eBay thing, and more often than not, things are not what they seem...

    Default An old Ushanka.

    Gentleman,

    I have spotted an ushanka for sale. I have been through all the threads in this forum about ushankas and have closely examined the photos of other ushankas in the Espenlaub Web page. Based on that, it attracts me.

    I assume that, as it happens with many other garments of the soviet uniform, the ushankas probably suffered minor changes after the war. As I have no idea on what to look for on a wartime piece, I would like your help with the identification of this particular specimen.

    Again, the photos shown are substandard to say the least, which is a negative point to start with. (the seller states his camera is old). Nevertheless, I would like to see what you think with the data available.


    Thanks and regards,

    Gus

    A very nice early cap. If you do not have in collection- you need to buy it!

    Thanks for your swift reply, Dimas. I really appreciate it.

    In case I am able to get hold of the ushanka, IŽll make high-res photos and upload them in this thread.

    Regards,

    Dimas,

    Is this one dated? I could only see the size P2 (apparently) on the right of the blurred photo of the stamp. In what area is the date?

    Dimas,

    Good eye. Yes, it does look like a 41. It is obvious that only someone who has had many of these ushankas in its hands and have knowledge of the stamp can determine all that information from a blurred photo

    Your knowledge never ceases to amaze me. Thank you very much for clarifying.

    Unfortunately, someone has been faster than me in grabbing the ushanka, so I have only a slim chance to opt for it, in case the transaction finally fails. Maybe some other time.

    Regards,

    Gus

    Gus,

    Money talks... If it were me, I would make the seller an offer that he can't refuse...

    Richie,

    You are right, money talks. The problem is that I am somewhat "mute" at the moment, so I cannot "speak louder" than the other buyer.

    In any case, I am a patient man and will eventually get hold of an ushanka for my collection.



    Regards,


    Gus
