KGB officer dress visor hat, dated 1988.
In wave blue wool gabardine with royal blue cloth band and piping. Gold chin cord, large full-dress style hat badge. The sweat diamond shows logo of Zarnitsa Headgear Factory in Moscow (not very clear but still legible) and the "88" date stamped in the lower part of the diamond. Size 55 (approx. US size 6 5/8).
Excellent condition. There are no moth bites; both the exterior and interior are perfectly clean. Nice and firm, with saddle shape to the crown completely intact. The sweat band is likewise pristine.
