Mask, Gas, German, Luftwaffe, 1938, Named, Normandy
Superb and scarce genuine WWII German gas mask, complete, dated 1938, size 2. In excellent condition, this mask retains its filter cartridge marked FE 37 AB and dated 1940, as well as its original lenses and straps on which the name Rieber has been handwritten.
The mask is delivered in its original Luftwaffe grey-blue canister (large size: 10.9in) which features number 387 and retains both carrying straps. The lid contains a pair of spare lenses in their original wrapping. The name J. Rieber or Bieber has been carved at the bottom, while Gefreiter Hof's name appears twice under the lid, indicating that the present gas mask was re-issued.
An amazing homogeneous set in excellent overall condition, found in Normandy years ago.
