K98 Ammo Pouch, Produced 1937 And Marked 4. Battr


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.


Constructed of blackened Brown pebbled leather with Aluminium fittings. All interior separator strips still intact. Clearly maker marked  stamped to the reverse and also marked “1937” for year of construction. Inside the middle pouch’s fold open lid  we find a black ink stamp which reads: “4. Battr” which indicated this pouch was used by an Artillery solider serving in the 4th company. The leather is still soft and pliable. In overall good used condition.
