    Judging by the sweatband, there must have been some intense acting going on

    Seriously though, I think the photos you posted make it hard to judge. So far I've been more into Cold War visor caps, but perhaps some of my thoughts may help a bit.

    I remember reading that large soviet theaters and film studios were supplied with original army caps. Those are usually marked with proper stamps. I imagine such markings would be necessary even in smaller theaters for inventory checkings, so keeping them clear and visible is important. I can't see any trace of a stamp like that on this cap.

    What if the cap had its visor replaced in post-army life? It's hard for me to imagine such a visor would be tolerated in service.

    As mentioned above, those are just my loose thoughts on the subject. Perhaps someone might put the discussion on the right track.
