Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. Russian M35 caps began the practice of identifying the wearer's arm or service (or branch) by differing band and piping colors. These caps were also characterized by spade-shaped (or square edged) visors, although rounded (semi-circular) visors were also worn infrequently, especially by those would could afford to have custom-made caps, such as generals. The crowns of these caps were relatively small and round, with a low rise in the front.

This cap with raspberry wool piping and blackhat band would have been worn by a Tank Corps Officer for service duty and for dress. The crown is dark green wool and an oilcloth chinstrap which is held in place by two brass buttons. The visor is made of fiberboard of an angled squared design popular with officers, although it was not specifically prescribed in Army regulations. A brass and enamel M39 star is pinned through the band. Interior bears no visible maker stamp. Overall condition is very good in an approximate size 57cm 7 1/8 US.
