Matching Pair of K98 Ammo Pouches Produced 1943
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.
Perfect matching pair, constructed of blackened Brown pebbled leather with steel fittings. All interior separator strips still intact. Clearly maker marked stamped to the reverse and also marked “43” for year of construction, 1943. The leather is still soft and pliable. In overall very good condition, most likely never issued with minor signs of storage wear and age.
Scarce to find a perfectly matching pair in this well preserved conditionl!!
