We import many hats from Asia. One day we opened a carton and found a bag full of these communist stars. This is solid hardware with a screw stem and a nut. We made a very small hole in our basic black, 100% wool beret, and inserted the star. Voila! We finally have a beret that is a reasonable facsimile of a hat that many customers have been asking for. Maybe better in that it is more unique than a patch or embroidered star. Supplies may be limited for we are uncertain that we can get more of these stars once we run out. (We are not even sure which vendor these came from!) The beret is perfectly symmetrical, so the wearer can decide if she/he wants the star front-and-center, off to the side, in the back, wherever. Also, - we tested it and the screw mount is not a problem on your head. There will be a small hole in your all-wool beret if you wish to take the star off - this can be easily hidden in the folds of the hat.
Color: Black with Red and Gold star.
Size: One-Size-Fits-Most (Berets are stretched to fit over one's head).
