    Default WWII Overseas cap help, please.

    I just picked up this enlisted overseas cap. it is dated 1941, but appears unworn. I find that a bit surprising and just wish to make sure I bought an original period overseas cap.

    Thank you for any assistance.

    I also have one of these, and believe it is 100% legitimate. However, I think the star on this one is 1950s. Mine came with a the same star when I first acquired it.

    In any case, Dave Webster procured a few bales (yes, bales! - of ten pcs) during one of his many Moscow buying trips in the early 1990s.

    The pea-green fabric did exist during those times, and I have seen and own gymnasterka made from it.

    Bob,


    Wonderful cap. Congrats and thanks for showing it. It won´t be hard to find a period star badge for it.




    Regards,
