    Default NKVD Visor Cap- WWII?

    Hi guys,

    I am very seriously considering purchasing this cap. The problem is, I have no idea how to tell a WWII-era Soviet cap from a 50's one. Could I please get your opinions, gentlemen?

    Thanks,
    Mo

    I would say this one is 50s still a nice cap, the period hats are hard to tell the age at least for me.

    Thanks Dom, how can you tell the reproductions from the originals if you don't mind me asking?

    Mo,

    I strongly believe, as Dom does, that this is a modern copy.

    The sweatband, liner, and plastic (70s - 90s) chinstrap with the rounded ends are the giveaways to me. I have seen newspaper tucked behind the sweatband before on genuine examples, but this one:

    I am very pleased that you asked here first, BEFORE you bought it.

    Regards,
    Richie

    Thanks guys!

    From what I have read, the sweatband should be a very dark leather, should it not? If I ever come across one of these, how can I tell if it's WWII or 1950's?

    No leather sweatbands Mo, and there exist a few different colors of oilcloth.

    If you ever come across another one that you are interested in, do just what you did, show it here first.

    I own quite a few examples, and I am certain that others do also. Unfortunately, I am unable to post images of them at present.
