Is this Soviet cap fake?
Can someone please help me confirm the authenticity of this cap? I was thinking it was a kgb cap at first, but the green band doesn't seem to be found in many other caps, only towards the late 80s early 90s.
Also the plastic buttons put me off
Thank you very much in advance

The buttons don't appear to be Soviet , Chinese maybe ?
I think, this cap - VOHR ( ВОХР - militarized security, dealing with the protection of enterprises and institutions, having firearm.). "Red star", maybe not from this cap.
Thank you very much
Yes the VOHR with the incorrect badge seems most likely.
It is indeed a very nice, authentic cap. With the proper insignia and oilcloth chinstrap it would be a good addition to any collection.
I'd certainly be proud to have it in mine.
Fellow collectors are NOT adversaries to be bested...
