VDV Beret help.

Hey guys.

Im making the purchase of a nice, authentic VDV Beret in my size no less, even with the factory stamp inside.
The only thing its missing is the badge on the front and the pin on the beret flash.
I don't think it'll be hard to find an enlisted mans cockade or even an airforce officers hat badge but I am having some major troubles finding the little VDV icon that goes on the flash...
I went to the one military store in the city that carries a miniscule amount of Soviet stuff and he was asking 20 dollars just for one little VDV pin!

Where can I find them?

No worries, you are most welcome. It's a pleasure to help another collector whenever I can. This is a great hobby and this is a great forum for sharing knowledge and helping each other wherever we are able.

Best regards,

Jim
