Sheldon Brown's East German Chapka

This comfy winter hat is booty of the Cold War. It is the East German version of a Red Army Chapka, complete with a pin featuring the East German hammer-and-dividers insignia. I bought it in an army-surplus store in Cambridge, Mass.
Nikon Coolpix 990 with Sunpak 433 flash,
