    Default K.98 cleaning kit case in bakelite.

    A friend has shown me what looks to be a K.98 cleaning kit case in bakelite. I have never seen one in bakelite before and don't know if they were in fact ever made during the war. Can anyone help me with this one. I can't imagine they would have made them post war but you never know. It would be great to be able to say one way or the other so please let me know.

    Jersey Looks WW2 I have read that late war ones were made in bakelite, due to saving metal. I am pretty sure the mark inside lid is German company there is a book about them moulders marks This is the first one I have seen I would say later war. timothy

    I have had a few private replyies to this thread and I have had my suspicions confirmed.... its a post war DDR kit not ww.2. Shame but there you go.
