    Default Garbage find! Helmet, gas mask & can, canteen, dak(?) binoculars! Help!

    Hello all! After a hard day of teaching history... these items were waiting for me at the recycling facility that my family owns!

    What exactly do I have on my hands here? Is everything authentic?! Can someone help me put a value on these items?

    THANKS!

    This appears to be an M40 lid... no liner and chinstrap unfortunately. There is only one stamp on the rear skirt... I am not familiar with it.








    I can't really make out the stamping.... S1890?




    Gasmask and canister:




    You can see the adler and swaz ink stamp...Nov. 44






    DAK(?) Binoculars:


    cag and blue triangle


    Dienstglas 6x30 and serial number 127153






    I'm thinking this might be a WW1 canteen?


    Detail on the canteen buttons:




    This was with it all... but I'm thinking it's a repro. I originally thought it was a K98 bayo... but it's clearly got a Russian maker mark.




    Maker marks?

    Please let me know if any additional pictures are required. I'm thrilled about this!

    The gas mask is a German M-38. Here's a great link for these..

    Another great save from being lost forever.

    Thanks for the response! I'd greatly appreciate help with all these items... I'm clueless for most of them.

    The Dienstglas i pretty sure are not DAK. Ordance tan was started to become more commen to be painted on equipment in 1943. The Bule triangle if i remember correctly means they can still work in the snow(freezing temp). So they were issued 1943+. Good find though i been hunting for Dienstglas like yours.

    Dienstglas could have been issued 1943+

    Oh...and the filter is correct for the M-38 gas mask I am pretty sure. Now you've tapped my knowledge base, the rest of this thread is going to be purely educational for me!

    I think I'm going to have to sell this stuff to fund some unforeseen expenses (and one that's 3 years in the making...). Can someone tell me how much they may be worth, please?
