    Apparently it is the box for the Gasmask for soldiers with head wounds...
    Of course, it has been repainted

    First time i hear about this type of box :P
    Is it considered "rare to find?" and what is its original colouring?
    Also thanks very much for the reply

    Indeed, this is a box for the "Gasschutzhaube" (the gas mask for head wounded).
    This is the version for 1 mask, but there are also boxed for 3 masks

    I have a few of these (but these are very rare)

    The boxes are relatively easy to find while the contents are very rare !!

    Here one of mine
