    Hi friends, It turns out fleabay is not always bad. I just picked up this Tornister for 88 US dollars. Usually, these sell for 3 times that amount. These are not reproduced so finding an original is not subject to the fakery and nonsense associated with medals, caps and other items. These Tornisters are sometimes referred to as radio packs but in reality they were intended for the small phone squad. The four man team was self contained with 3 numbered packs containing cable, reels, batteries, cable gloves, poles and other field phone gear. This one is in good shape. It has a few issues - a broken strap hook, missing d-ring at the top and no shoulder straps. It does have a section often missing with these packs - the internal shelf units. Note the internal shelf is made of black painted steel with rawhide attached. The rawhide patches were there to prevent the 17.5 cm cable reels from scraping the metal or cutting into the pack sides. Manufacturer is clearly visible as Otto Koberstein Landsberg a.W. 1941, a manufacturer who also made all kinds of other leather items for the military. There is an ink stamp on the pouch that held the Aufspuler device that I cannot decipher. NH
