Fount it at the recycle thrift store. I can't tell if its a cool souvenir or the real deal because it's really clean.
Any guesses?

I just added a close up photo of the text under the 55 which is printed on the INSIDE the cap. The text is in Russian. Check it out. Thx.
 

Cool find !
 

The tank image: Russian emblem of the Soviet Union armored forces, and then Russia and some CIS republics 1960s - early 1990s.
All the attachments appear to have been hastily sewn or attached as one might do going to a sports event.
Don.......
 

Boy do I have a story for you...In Oct. 2010, 75 kids and their chaperones came here to FT. Myers on a goodwill tour of Little League baseball. The kids needed host families, and we got roped in to host teenagers for two weeks. None of them spoke English, but certainly understood it. They all came to America w/ 2 large suitcases, one loaded w/ baseball gear and (limited) clothes, the other packed w/ everything from Vodka to military ''collectables'', to Matryoshka nesting dolls. The intent was to gift these to host families, in exchange for American souvenirs. I assumed wranglers and Marlboros...actually wanted I-pads and I-phones...who knew? Anyways several of us Dads of the neighborhood compared notes and realized we all ended up with Russian junk that is worthless. I have long since gotten rid of the clutter they brought into my home, and I know my "other Moms and Dads" have too, mostly at yard sales and thrift stores...looks like you got the real McCoy,...enjoy. P.S., do you want any Vodka? I got like 3 gallons of it.
