    Well I bought this Ushanka from a person, it said authentic Russian Ushanka, then I asked him if it was legit, he said it was a Bulgarian one, but it was used during world war 2. Should I believe it or not, please help.

    You need to show images of the actual cap, not one that looks the same, as the subtle differences might escape you but not someone here.

    Jeez, I'll post a picture of a friends cat and ask whether my cat is pure siamese for fecks sake

    Whatever its just an opinion.

    Bulgarian made Ushankas are post war.

    But they are very close in look to a wartime Soviet one. If you want it for living history, they are an excellent choice. I use one for that myself.

    Cheers, Ade.
