    Default Papakha information request

    I've come into possession of this colonel's papakha. I'd like some feedback and information on it. Is the badge original to the hat? I have seen similar interior stamps on 1960s dated pieces, does that make sense for this stamp without any date stamp (IE how can I date this one?). Also what branch is it given the hat badge?

    Does the stamp say Ministry of Light Industry Moscow Fur Factory #5?

    At the bottom of the stamp is a 9......

    Anyone? Is the insignia right for the hat? The wreath seems uncommon, could an airforce colonel wear this?

    Indeed an air force badged papakha.
    Later investigation does put the stamp in the 1960s (could also be in other eras).

    Yes, it is so.

    the "9" a the bottom is most likely part of the size, as in "59". maybe the stamper got creative and thought that just a "9" was enough since the factory #5 was already there

    Seems it's true. Here is my papakha, there is "58" at the bottom.
