    Default Soviet Sidecap - Need help







    Bought on a market from a Polish seller, which told me it was old and originally bought from a Russian.
    Also said something about the color, which had something to do with "not-so-nice-russians".
    Does anyone have any experience on this subjet, I have no idea what it is and if it's somewhat legit.

    Greetings.

    I imagine that all of the badges and patches on it will be legit, as is the cap itself. These hats have been made up since the end of the Cold War to make them appeal more to tourists, hence all of the badges and patches on it. I have picked up a couple of these. Also, I believe that the White piping on a black cap means this was used by the Navy.

    Like Spitface said. All of them are, for sure real. This is an usual style to do in ex Soviet block countries, to attach pins and patches to pilotkas, so souvenirs would buy them. The name inscribed on it reads кузичкин (Kuzichkin).
