    Hello Mate

    i find it weird that the 40г part of the stamp is so hard to read/not clear as the other parts.
    A noteworthy issue. However:

    Yes, a 1948 dated cap would be identical to a wartime example

    I believe the regulation for piping on pilotki was cancelled in the latter months of 1941 - so a 1948 mfg date is out of the question.

    I believe that Dom knows his USSR head gear very well. However the "56" just above shows no sign significant of wear. What a coincidence

    PS: Note the absence of the cloth star which usually located behind the star-cockarde on officer's pilotki. I believe that this regulation was reserved for senior NCOs.

    Well, unfortunately I wasn't able to get either of these caps They sold for more than I was willing to pay...

    The Ushanka sold for $130, which wouldn't have been a bad price had it been in a bit better condition.
    The Pilotka went for $377.
