    An OGPU Border Guard's visor cap from the 1920's, I believe, currently residing in my collection. . .

    That is certainly a beauty Bill. Congrats!

    That star cockarde is an absolute ORIGINAL example of the M22. Notice that it is not "think and clumsy", like the chipped-up, fake-aged knock offs that adorn the equally fake M27 caps that have flooded the Western collector's market in recent years...

    Non nobis, Domine, non nobis, sed nomini tuo da gloriam!

    Thank you, gentlemen. It really was a lucky acquistion, and, as you say, tough to upgrade. I'll add some more pictures soon. . .

    That one is made of US type of material and early rough "kolenkor" sweatbamd, the bright wool piping is in Imperial quality. I had this visor in my own collection over a 10 years, but I've decided to collect only a 35-45 years items, due of that , sold/trade a lot of stuff
