    M 1935 Infantry officer visor hat, circa late 1940s - early 50s.

    M 1935 Infantry officer visor hat, circa late 1940s - early 50s.

    In olive green wool gabardine with crimson piping and band, and square visor. Includes original chin strap and WW2 type side buttons (not showing the date on the back unlike the post-war buttons). The hat badge is of WW 2 type, as is the whole "look" of the hat. The sweatband is in brown ersatz leather. The liner shows a stamp of the Red Warrior Headgear Factory in Moscow. There is no date, but the style of the stamp leads us to believe that the hat was made in the immediate post-war years. Marked size 58 on the liner but the actual size appears to be closer to a 57 (US 7 1/8), which is still an uncommonly large size for a Soviet hat of WW2 or early Cold War era.

    In excellent condition. The wool crown is extremely well preserved, completely free of noticeable moth tracking on both the top and underside. The piping and band are likewise completely intact and free of stains. There are a few scuffs to the top of the visor that are not very detractive and a single small crack at its edge that is almost unnoticeable. The visor is completely sound and firmly attached to the hat. The liner and sweat band are very clean, the stamp is nice and clear.

    If you were assembling a WW 2 Soviet Army uniform display but have not been able thus far to acquire an actual wartime hat, this cap would make an excellent substitute!
