    I apologize for my crummy phone camera, too many scratches from it being flung around

    1st: VDV beret made in 1990

    2nd: I believe a 1969 experimental VDV beret? Pretty worn.

    3rd: Marine Infantry beret, not sure of the year. I tried to get a picture of the worn stamp on the inside. Since the lighting ***** it may be hard to see.

    5th: VDV beret with original tag, I'm not sure what the device is on the flash but I'm pretty sure it doesn't belong there, but again I don't know :P.

    Better pictures would be great!
    The naval infantry badge is hard to tell, as these continued to be made sans markings, so this one might not be pre-91? Can't tell. Does it have a provision for the underchin cord?

    I'd love to see better pictures!

    I've never really seen a red VDV beret, a KGB beret nor the brown one. It'd be easier to tell what the brown one was if it had a badge or a cockade ! And from what I can tell on the second VDV beret there is that it's a VDV Signal Trooper's beret.

    I'm not sure, but I once seen a sage green hat with a brown band as well as brown piping and I was told it was Ukrainian (When they were still a part of the Soviet Union), maybe the last (brown) beret is Ukrainian in origin as well ?
