Luftwaffe Marked K98 Ammo Pouch, Produced 1939


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 intact. Maker marked  stamped to the reverse with year of production “1939”. There is also a handwritten number located to the reverse “961”. Inside the pouch, located in the middle we find the markings “L.B.A.(S.)40”. Which is a Luftwaffe marking code and “40” is for the year 1940.  The pouch is in good still slightly used condition with soft and pliable leather.


Pretty scarce Luftwaffe marked example!!
