    Default German Gasmask - A few questions

    Hey everyone!

    I purchased a German gasmask from a local man about a week ago. I have a few questions about it.



    1. Is this mask a repro? It looks very legit to me, I have just started this hobby in collecting war relics so I could be wrong.


    2. Is this a civilian mask? I have done a little research online and I think it may be civilian, maybe someone knows if it is or not?


    3. Is that name at the bottom modern? It looks like someone has used white out to make that.

    Hi - its a Model 40 civilian gas mask as issued to the Luftschutz ( air defence ) for protection. All looks fine and in the tin reasonably scarce.
    Nice to see all the original straps too ( even if they look rough ).

    Regards, Dan
