GERMAN THIRD REICH CAMOUFLAGE K.98 AMMO POUCH.
An absolutely magnificent and highly scarce item being a camo painted ammo pouch. The application of camo paint was relatively common upon many objects of German equipment and it is obvious that the German soldier was highly aware of the need to conceal himself and a high degree of individualised field craft application was applied. This particular pouch has a typical yellow tan camo splotch and green overpaint in a fairly random fashion. There is areas of cracking and crazing to the paint and areas of minor loss as well as abrasion. The pouches are slightly distorted for years of storage, however remain excellent. The markings appear unreadable to the back and perhaps are very faintly stamped. The whole set is an excellent and dramatic and very scarce item that would display wonderfully on its own or with a grouping of camouflaged items.
