This is a Soviet-era Navy Admiral’s visor cap. One thing I always found intriguing about high-ranking Russian officers was their visor caps’ sheer size. Their diameters at the top were particularly large. This cap sports a wide, black-velvet trim band that measures 1″ wide. Above that are two thin white bands of piping. The rest of the cap top’s basic color is black. In the black trim band’s center (where one would see kokarden on a German visor cap) is a background of gold oak leaves. Within the oak leaves’ center is a fouled anchor. Directly above the anchor is a red enamel star sporting the Soviet Union’s hammer and sickle. Below the oak leaf device is a chin strap that is connected to small, gilt-toned buttons. Within the buttons’ center is another fouled anchor. Inside the cap is a brown leather sweatband. A black silk liner covers the cap’s interior. This cap is in mint condition, and dates from 1960 to 1985.
