Original Russian CIVIL War Cheka Kgb Soviet Visor Cap Hammer And Plow 1918-1922
Although there is no date on the hat, the year can be determined by the symbol on the hat, which is that of a hammer and plow. This was the symbol of Soviet Russia prior to 1922, when the classic hammer and sickle symbol became their new official emblem. This hat is leather, belonging to a member of the Cheka (All-Russian Extraordinary Commission – established in December 1917). The deeds of the Cheka are well-known and they were even despised by many communists upon their creation. Dzerzhinsky once said that in the Cheka there were two types of people,’sinners’ and’saints’, but acknowledged that unfortunately’we have too many sinners’. It is in relatively good condition considering how leather ages. It is 100% original. This is an extremely rare item. You will never see another hat like it ever again. In all my years of collecting, my son has only seen it once himself, and that was when he bought it. If you have any questions or would like to see more pictures, please ask. This comes from a smoke free home. Please keep in mind that it will be fully insured and also require an adult signature when being delivered.
