Default Identifying Soviet Hats

I bought a lot of Soviet hats and I'm not sure what they are and if they're real or fake. Does anyone have advice on how to identify them?

If the tag says "Made in China", they are fake.

Almost all issue type gear has some sort of mark or stamp to ID the supplier.
Check the liners, sweat bands, interiors. Turn them inside out and look closely.
