    Hello,
    It is an original set with black rubber GM38 and M38 canister.
    The short strap is OK, but long one is postwar Bundeswehr...(sorry)
    To find different dates of production on lenses box and opening spring is rather common...
    Thanks

    Hello,

    Ian : i didnt say that i thought the long strap to be postwar....i said only it's postwar...because it is...
    This thick strap with characteristic weave would be more appropriate for a 1958 dated canister !
    I'm sure that one of our members from Netherlands, specialist of WWII german fieldgear will confirm this...
    Thanks

    You must have leather parts or rubber parts.


    If not, for me, it's recovered.

    Too bad you dont consider that carrying straps without leather tabs are not untouched since the war as an official order from mid-1942 asked soldiers to remove them from their straps...

    Funny that German coarse weave is post war when the British used exactly the same coarse weave on their 37 pattern webbing???
    Much stronger IMO ....... just like the NATO adopted fuel can was the German design NOT the US one, it may have been a case of using the best one?

    I wonder.... who do you mean.... hahahaha

    No indeed, straps are BW.... easy to recognize.....

    btw, the germans did use coarse weave also on later items.... the pattern however is different.....
