M/36 cap has been in use from its adoption to Finnish army in 1936, there is countless modifications, versions, material changes and colors of the M/36 ( M/52 ,M/58, M/61, M/65....), but all were known as M/36.
These caps are 1960´s and 1970´s version of the same headgear, manufactured by the government uniform factory ( VPU ).
The cap is made of thick uniform canvas, the sides of the cap can be opened to protect ears and neck, the cap has a place for the cap badge. Almost all are 100% unissued, but the caps have been in storage since 1960´s, some minor faults are possible, but these are really fine specimen of M/36 cap.
Most caps have original factory slips on place.
Great piece for those who wish to have ww2 type Finnish uniform cap.
