    I'm not a dedicated Soviet militaria collector, but when I saw this police cap at an estate sale I thought it would make a nice addition to the collection. Very Happy

    Overall, it looks as if was never issued. The only negative thing is the interior leather maker mark is missing, but the stitches are still there. The size is marked 55 and there is also some random scribble. I believe this hat is from the 1977-1991 time frame?

    Nice hat! The Soviets did have some sharp-looking uniforms.

    Excuse me (sorry), but cord does not correspond to soviet. The Soviet cord is made from metallic wire and has a typical wickerwork.

    Thanks Sarbaz! Very Happy

    There is a possibility that the cord is replaced, although it looks as if it's been with the cap for a long time. I also checked some photos online and the cord looks similar, but I know next to nothing about Soviet headgear.

    Would you happen to have any photos of another Soviet police cord, it would be much appreciated. Smile

    Thanks Sarbaz!

    Indeed the cord does look different from my own, although the style is the same.

    I think ill just keep it with the hat, as I can't think of any other way of finding a replacement cord without tearing another hat apart. Very Happy
