*Note* Majority of badges are the small roundal, however there are some large badges mixed in (also with a different fabric colour hue). These will be picked at random, see last photo for comparison
Genuine East German (German Democratic Republic) Army issue ushanka. The war was cold and so was the winter air. Troops would wear these warm ushankas to protect their head, ears, and chin from the cold. The faux fur (or fish fur) ear flaps can be buttoned under the chin or tied back, ski-style. These remained as part of the winter German Police uniform after the reunification of Germany.
The genuine East German insignia makes this a nice piece for a collector. Or wear it in the colder months to stay warm.
