    Hello Chaps

    Need some of your expert opinions please.

    The map case in the pictures is being advertised on a local auction site as an original WW2 German Map Case. Thing is, I haven't ever seen one in this particular build/version. The stud and hanger markings are clear but I have not frame of reference.

    Can anyone help me ? It's not on offer cheap so I really need to make an informed decision.

    Thanks in advance

    All I can say is I have not seen it before either, but it is similar (not the same though) in style to the wartime Soviet pattern.

    The makers hardwear is legitimate for wartime German products.

    Hi Chaps

    I ended-up passing on this item at auction. I discovered that the PRYM studs are still made by the same company today and I am of the opinion that the map case in question is post war. The case lacks the pen holders and other characteristics one would expect to see on a WW2 German map case. Thank-you for your input, much appreciated.
