    This ushanka is approximately a size 57 (I can't discern a label denoting the actual size, but it fits me perfectly and is used regularly when walking the dog in cold weather).

    There is a handwritten label (in blue ink) sewn into the crown with a legend that appears to read '1056-55' (pictured - please excuse the yellow hue from fluorescent lighting).

    There is also the very faint outline of the manufacturer's stamp in the crown (in gold/brown), but it has evaded all attempts to capture it using a camera. I've tried raked light with flash in the last image (apologies for the quality ), but this is the best way to pick it out.

    There is no mothing at all and minimal wear to the rear edges of the ear flaps where the 'fishfur' meets the wool.

    Can anybody take a stab at dating this ushanka on the limited information presented please?

    Thanks

    Thanks Dimas - that's very helpful and the nap of the wool/pile of the fishfur does look very similar indeed to mine, even down to the colour of the stamp.

    I shall upload some images of a high quality leather ushanka (silk lining, leather shell, Asrtakhan wool facings). I am given to believe that it's a wartime officer's hat (the quality certainly is consistent with this), but I'd be grateful for more expert opinion.

    I'd be grateful if any member could give me more information on this leather ushanka please. The quality (of lining, stitching, material) is significantly higher than my previously posted infantryman's cap.
    Thanks very much
