    Communist Afghanistan Army officer hat badge, huge 75 mm version, 1980-87.

    Communist Afghanistan Army officer hat badge, huge 75 mm version, 1980-87.

    In aluminum and paint. This is the largest version of the Afghan hat badge of the Communist era measuring 74.3 mm in height x 75.0 mm in width. Features the early version of the state emblem of the Democratic Republic of Afghanistan, with the book. The emblem was changed in 1987.

    In excellent condition. The paint is extremely well- preserved having only very minor scuffs, no chips or significant wear. The anodized finish is perfectly preserved and bright, completely free of the usual tarnish. The attachment prongs are intact and fully functional.

    The exact purpose of this hat badge is unknown. We can only guess by analogy with Soviet uniforms that it was probably used on helmets of motorcycle policemen. From our experience with medals and insignia of Communist Afghanistan, the "oversized" version of the Afghan hat badge is exceedingly rare.

    Please note, penny in our photo is for size reference.
