Original service dress visor cap worn by a Marshal of the Soviet Union. The visor was attributed to Marshal Sokolov, but I was never able to verify this. The cap shows some wear inside, the exterior is nearly perfect. The cap manufacturer (which translates as "43rd Central Experimental Manufacturing Combine") was the most common manufacturer of general and admiral caps in these later years. Hand embroidered gold bullion oak leaves surround the two-piece Soviet cockade. All high ranking officers utilized two-piece cockades, if you find any example with a solid piece device, it is either a replacement, or more likely, the cap is a fake.
