    Default Is this an artillery rucksack?

    Hello guys, this rucksack is being offered for 50 euros and seller says it's an artillery WWII made. I have been advised by a third party that it is assembled post war using original parts and not an army issued piece.
    Who is right and who is wrong? I would like to get your feedback on this.
    Thanks in advance.

    Does not look like an original artillery ruck sack to me. There should not be pockets and back straps look bad so does the clips on the rucksack.

    Hello Franz and thanks for your reply. Does it look like another branch's sack or is it a frankestein?

    Hello,
    Considering its features, there is a good chance that this "Rucsack" has been made postwar. It is an original item of course, not a fake, but made postwar with german army equipments leftovers...
    The genuine artillery Rucksack has no front pocket.
    Thanks

    Hi Donkihotis
    This is an Artillerie Rucksack with its straps mounted for attaching the Zeltbahn,in the first four pics.The other one is one with the straps removed,do not know when or why this happened.Both are bought from Hamburg.Both have RBNR's and are genuine.To my mind this how an artillerie backpack should look.Also a good source is Augustin Saiz DIE DEUTCSHE SOLDATEN book,has some errors though...Of course those errors are always marked by people who would never try to pick a pencil up and write someting themselves...
