    Default Soviet caps- identification and authentication

    I'm seeking any knowledge anyone has on these three caps, as I have no idea what's what when it comes to Soviet uniform. All I know is that many of these caps are mismatched and pieced together to sell, so I'd also like to know if their configurations are correct. I have tried to use an identification guide, but couldn't find exact matches, so any help would be very much appreciated. The black with brown band/piping cap was sold as a Ukrainian fire service cap, but I haven't been able to verify that. Thanks for reading.

    Also this piece- I've seen the badge on the cap referred to as KGB, but I've tried to verify this and come up with nothing once again (I assume that's incorrect). Any help on these is greatly appreciated.

    Hello Mat,

    I am not too uppity-up on this late stuff, but here are my guesses:

    1- I have no idea...

    2- Tank/Artillery Officer

    3- Army Officer

    4- Without a doubt - Militia (Police) officer
    .

    Fellow collectors are NOT adversaries to be bested...

    Thanks for your help Richie. I just need to find out about the first now, and if they're all correctly configured. Can anyone else help with originality or identification?

    Mat,

    There are a swell bunch of guys here who seem to know about modern things: http://russiamilitaria.ru/index.php?

    Thanks for the suggestion Richie, and I've since found out that the first hat is a Ukrainian fire service cap with an incorrectly-added Soviet badge; so a 'fantasy piece', I guess you could call it.

    I acquired the pictured Army Officer and Militia caps, and have some background on their owners. I will post about them shortly.

    Mat
