    When I saw the price (it was "Pay Now") I couldn't belive my eyes...I usually ask here first, for opinions, but this time I just hit the pay now button...

    UPDATE:

    Hi All,

    The mask+can arrived just an hour ago...and I have to say; they even look better in person.

    The can is like new - virtually still has all the original paint and no rust whatsoever inside the can. I didn't find any factory markings just yet - has the owner's name on the lid and maybe the unit number(?)

    Kan. K. Sutter (Kanonier= artilleryman/gunner) and the number: 661 - this number can also be found on the bottom of the can. There is another black painter number on the can: 73
    (interesting detail: Mr. Sutter also wrote his name in pencil, can be seen under (or over?) the painter letters)

    The mask is a size 2, model 38 dark blue rubber mask with markings: 'a q d' inside the rubber and '1940 Innenseile Gussn. 7/91128' on both yellow tinted glasses.
    'bmw 4?' (the second num. is unclear) on the snout.

    There is some slight surfice rust on the 'FE37 AB' filter with additional markings: R Fe - WaA 104 and 41/52 - So the filter looks to be 1941 made.

    I have an original cloth/spring for this can and I'm very happy that the set of original straps I got from Tom is the same color and textile as the can's short strap on the lid.

    I only need to get 2 pairs of spare glasses and will complete this beauty...

    Overall, the best 44 EU + 3 EU shipping I've ever spent probably...

    I made some crappy pics (sorry, as I wrote it in another thread; I'm planning to get a proper camera this year)

    Cheers,
    Fabe

    PS: I have an spare rust-free FE 41 filter (see last pic.), and I was actually thinking about replacing the "little-rusty" filter - but I know what u guys would say: "Don't mess with the original set!"

    Great piece, I just bought one this morning plus a few extra bits.

    My father and uncles were in Budapest during/after the war- they played with that stuff all the time there- it was everywhere in the streets back in the day...sadly some little kids at times played with things that went boom and a lot of little kids were lost to unexploded mines/grenades & shells.

    Man too bad the kids didn't save the helmets..........

    ...a photo from my collection - Hungarian kids with "present cigars" they got from German troops (in backround) - only date in the back of it: "Ungarn IV. 8." (probably 1944)

    There were just a few pics from the war from my fathers family...most were destroyed as my family fought with the Germans against the Soviets and again during the Revolution.

    I love that country, I'm a dual citizen actually
