Not much separating German-issue Kubanka's from regular Cossack headgear issued during any period before or after their incorporation into the German armed forces. Looks real, but for use during what period.

I think this one has a good chance of wartime German volunteer service, based on what appears to be German tress added during construction. Most of the time, this tress is broader and not the collar-type shown here, but why not?

All in all, I'd say this could very well be what it appears to be - a wartime volunteer used Kubanka.
