    Default Gas mask questions

    I am trying to figure out some information about my aluminum canister gas mask. On the mask, there is a stamp on a eagle and swastika. The same is on the canister. A neighbor told me that the swastika would be indented most of the time. On my, the eagle is stamped on with back ink. There is also some numbers on the front. They are indented outward. Is this possible? The shape of the canister looks like this. Name:  113794436_1.jpg

    The gasmask is made of laytex. This isn't my mask but it is very similar. Only different are the numbers. Too late not to check, because it is in my garage and it's dark, but I belive the numbers aare poping out. I'll check in the morning

    They are civil volksgasmaske 37 sold to civilians.
    The stamps with the eagles are maker stamps.
    Looking for following WWII German items:
    - anything dealing with Allenstein (Olsztyn) and Wehrkreis I in East Prussia,
    - entrenching tool carrier (straight and folding),
    - forestry and hunting items,
