Ww1 Russian Officers Visor Cap - Complete For Sale
Offered here is a WW1 Russian Czarist officer's visor cap. I have had this cap a long time and it is one of the finest examples I've come across. The photos really tell the whole story. The cap body is constructed of a fine lightish green wool and the piping is a burgandy/raspberry red. I'm not sure what the significance of the color is - Infantry perhaps or possibly machine gun unit. The Czarist cockade on the front is metal and been on the hat forever. The visor is thick formed leather and the exterior is painted an olive/khaki green. The leather is in excellent condition with some slight surface crazing. There is no mothing anywhere on the cap that I can see. The cap body is sound and retains its excellent and distinctive shape. The lining is a tannish cotton and the sweatband is a coarse woven material. The hat has been issued and worn and has some slight soiling from use as the photos will show. There is a stamp inside the cap - a double headed eagle and cyrillic characters. This is an extremely nice and fairly scarce cap at a low opening offer.
I am also listing a WW1 Russian officer's tunic with matching piping and shoulder boards so please check it out.
