    Nice item,
    That mask looks like a similar issue in ww2 to me although you can see the big differences with the carry tin.

    Variant masks

    I used to have a WW1 German leather mask, with can. My can was shorter, and there was dividers in the lenses (hard to explain that one), then there is the Austrian mask, that has a real short can with no ridge on it. Dano

    yes Dano

    yes you are right there are several typs of cans and masks with a lot of diffrence !
    there are i gues 5 different cans and some self made cans in the trenches and the masks it self also very different like the mask with the spider in the glasses or the ´´schnapp filter ´´ a extra filter under the normal filter for special gas !!
