    Default Face mask, luftwaffe?

    Happy Halloween with this one. The seller claims this one to be Luftwaffe related (found n Northern Finland after the war). I have my serious doubts, no markings whatsoever. Could it be that some soldier had this one made to cover his face from the freezing winds. What do you guys think? All help welcome!

    Best,

    Let's have a look at those Snaps...do they by chance match these German Prym snaps?
    I would have guessed a Kradmelder's Face Mask...I don't really have a problem with this piece as it shows proper age and some wear, got a good gut-feeling about it overall...markings could be non-existent or long gone by now...
    cheers, Glenn
