K98 Ammo Pouch, Produced in Berlin 1937
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. Stamped inside the pouch positioned in the middle is “B 37” in black ink for “Berlin 1937”. The leather is still soft and pliable. In overall good used condition.
Very nice, still used exampel!!
