K98 Ammo Pouch Late War Production
When issued all K98’s were equipped with one or two ammunition pouches. The earlier pattern pouches have the belt loops which fold under the pouches bottoms and attach to the studs there, while the latter patterns have the belt loops which are just stitched or rivetted to the reverse. The latter patterns also usually have steel fittings as opposed to the earlier aluminum fittings.
Very late war produced example made of blackened Brown leather. Fully riveted straps as seen only on late examples. Construction with Steel fittings. Complete with all separator strips. Stamped with hard to read markings at several places. There is one clear stamp which most likely is a manufacturer code stamp. “412” ¨
In very good condition with minor signs of storage wear.
Very nice and harder to find late war most likely produced in 1945!!
