    Default Map case markings... authentic ?

    Hello !
    I need some help here i have a Map case with some marking that when reading another thread about when it's writing made in Germany that meant it was before the end of war something like that . What is bothering me is i found on the 2 part ( the metal part who close the map case) 2 different inscription that are hard to read
    1:
    Brev.SGDG.
    Foreign Pats (or could be the word Parts)
    2:
    19ckt?te
    usa Pat 1560400
    Ges Ges M
    Made in Germany
    Inside the case is a RBN number
    RBN 0/0250/0092
    Now is it post war or were they using foreign parts ?
    Thanks in advance

    Frenchy,

    It looks ok, the patent you mention is off the buckle fastener. This probably pre dates the war and they were trying to protect their invention. I have seen one or two like this I think late war and that is perhaps why they are using this less robust fastener.

    Hello,
    "Brev. SGDG." is french and means "Breveté Sans Garantie Du Gouvernement". Once translated it gives something like "Patented without government warranty".
    Foreign Pats could be Foreign Patents
    Ges Gesh is for gesetzlich geschützt which means protected by law.
    Hard to say something concerning this mapcase. A bit unusual. The front part (once the flap is up) looks like a Luftwaffe one. The closure system is weird...
    Thanks

    This case is absolutely correct. I have the identical case which came directly from the German vet. Mine has the contents as well. The made in Germany stamp is there because I believe these were also exported.
