    1947-53 star-cockarde. Plastic 70s chinstrap. Middle 50X type visor.

    Lend-Lease fabric and "wartime" buttons are beyond me going from the photos.

    Not a fake cap in any case and nice for what it is.

    Thanks for the reply Richie. The visor came with a grouping that belong to an Estonian officer who served in Estonian Rifle Corps. So he served somewhere after the Corps was eliminated in 1946.
    There was also pre and war time items in this group.

    Hi.

    I peeked under the star and there was a mark of a small star being used.
    Dima saw the cap in hand and said it is not Russian work but Estonian make.
    The cap had a movie ticket that looks like 1940 stamped, placed underneath the sweatband.
    I am confused by the bill though. Looking at the pictures you see round visors like this (or at least it seems to me) on the early war visors as well. I cannot see the difference between the early war and the 1950 made bill. Pardon my ignorance.

    Regards
