K98 Ammo Pouch Well Marked And Constructed 1935
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. The middle interior separator is partly loose, missing the left side attachment prong. Clearly maker marked stamped to the reverse and also marked “1935” for year of construction. The leather is soft and pliable. In overall good used condition.
Rather early example in good still used condition!!
