German WW2 M1938 Gas mask canister named set. Canister, strap, mask, filter and spare lenses. I guarantee these to be 100% genuine WW2 issue, they have not been messed with in any way. 1943 dated and maker marked canister with black painted name and serial number J BLEY L 36860 painted in black later war style to the lens compartment lid. The mask type GM-38 and filter type Fe41 are in fair condition, both are WAa eagle stamped.The snout of the mask is dated'43 and it is dated'43' inside the mask too'. The left eye lens has a white misting ring.
This set has it's long chest strap, of web material, with buckle and metal mushroom, the strap is worn and has been shortened, however they are quite rare to find. The lid of the canister is a good fit with it's web pull strap and mechanism working perfectly. Inside the lid compartment is a spare set of lens in their wax paper packet.
This is an honest set, the canisters paint work is 95% + intact, not battered or messed around with in any way. Do your research, look at the photographs and don't miss out. This is not the usual relic, held together with screws and glue having been repainted or worse totally repro.
