Under the Red Star – Army Caps

For Sale

Although the caps pictured on my site are not for sale (well, I guess everything has a price – but you would have to dig deep), I do have a few extra caps I’ve picked up over the years that I can bear to part with. Click on each thumbnail to open up a higher resolution image. Standard shipping cost of one cap within US – $4.50, including delivery confirmation. Actual cost overseas. I will of course entertain offers of trade for caps I don’t have. If interested, you can contact me at: randallstewart@comcast.net

I have also added a replica Soviet Army Award Banner which would be a striking centerpiece to any Soviet uniform collection.

“For Courage and Military Valor”

Superb replica Soviet Unit Award Banner instituted in 1972. According to regulations: “it will be awarded to formations, units and ships whose personnel display courage and military valor in carrying out assignments of the Ministry of Defense or during exercises and cruises”. This one is for the 125 Tank Regiment for its performance in Exercise “Vostok 72”.

Copied from original in Moscow Army Museum. Fantastic colored silk embroidery on heavy red cloth backing, gold bullion edging

Cost: $225; can return if not satisfied; will split cost of return shipping
