Hi All -
Just got this item - something I don't see very often, at least not in this complete condition. It's a Hungarian M1939 ski pair, as used by the mountaineer troops (see last reference photo I attached). These mountaineers were actually trained by Finnish army, to get used to a winter warfare.
Looks to be in good condition, all leather straps are still intact. (which is rare, usually they are either missing all together or ripped)
Unfortunately, no poles...
I'll post more about this, when I receive the item. I'll have a question under the photos.
OK, and here's a question...
I also just saw this item - it's some kind of (according to the seller) WW2 "military ski protector" - I try to google this, no results, maybe if I knew the proper name for it. So the question:
Is this really WW2? What army used this? I saw no markings (on the photos). So if anyone know anything about it, do let me know... I'm thinking about getting it.
I don't what the market value of these - I won the skis for 48 EU and these protectors are around 10 EU.
Here is the reference photo of Hungarian moutaineer troops of WW2:
THX for looking!
