MARSHAL OF SOVIET UNION SERVICE VISOR HAT 1980-1991
This is the everyday cap of a Soviet MSU (Marshal of Soviet Union) near the end of the USSR. It is very similar in design and construction to the grey walking-out cap, with the exception of the khaki coloured crown and the simplified band embroidery.
The spray of gold-thread oak leaves is smaller (four leaves per side vice the seven on the grey cap) - which reflects 1989 regulations. The remainder of the cap is of the same style as the walking-out cap; red band and piping, standard officer's gold cords held in place by two gold buttons cast with the Great Seal of the USSR, and a patent leather visor covered underneath with black cloth. The lining is silk and the sweatband is kid leather pierced with a coloured ribbon. Again, there is no date which indicates late 1980s or early 1990s production.
