    Default Soviet Map Case era ?

    Hello,

    I see a lot of map cases for sale here (in Poland) and the Ukraine. I see a lot of small variations specifically with the colour of the cloth piece inside.

    Do people even bother to produce "fakes" of these ? I'd guess that variations are due to production being in different factories in satellite states etc. I also looks like these were made with cheaper materials like when they made the switch from using leather belts to canvas.

    If someone could identify these or link me to a guide book or pics from the time that would be a great help!

    Apologies if this has already been answered.

    These are all post war cases. A good selection is shown in 'The Soviet Soldier' by Phillip Rio.

    I think that style dates from the 70s/80s!....
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    This type was made after 1962 and was also used in the DDR. All earlier types has no folding sides. This modification is a mixture of pilot and motorcyclist map cases.
