    Default Pack Frame, Original?

    Hello All!

    Recently I was given by a friend this pack frame , He told me it was original to the war and was a heavy pack frame. I am not well versed in German pack frames ( Other then A-frame assault frames)

    Is this a War time pack frame? ( I could not find any marks, maybe I am looking in the wrong places?)

    Or is this Post War?

    Thank you for your time, I sincerely appreciate it!

    Thank you Tom!

    I was wondering if it was post war, The thing that had me question it was that all the webbing on it is woven similar to the Web Y-Straps, As well as the aluminum buckles are of the same type & the over all construction is similar, The metal tips are totally different than war time .........Now to find out exactly what country made/used this frame and when it was in service......so far my searching has come up with nothing....Any ideas?

    The hardware suggests Czech or possibly East German. I have seen Czech backpacks with similar hardware. NH

    I was thinking in that direction too..... although some of the straps also look a bit like Bundeswehr webbing too.... difficult, maybe someone will come up with the answer
