    Ade,

    Thanks for posting more pics. I've now spent a some time removing the dust from under the brackets on mine which has revealed a 44 on each of the earpieces and also a pale or even white stamped eagle and swastika with i believe D.A. B31 underneath on both of them - right in the centre, so hard to get to and even to see at anything other than a very flat angle (and i'm not going to take them to pieces!).

    Isn't it great even spending time on such a simple item (January evenings!!)

    Cheers

    Tietze

    The throat mike in the set shown by Neil is completely OK, but the headset is put together using non-panzer postwar Czech parts. The set that started the thread is also having pads taken from a wrong headset and bad plug.
    Adrian's headset is all OK, though repainted and the throat mike appears to be a Kmfa though the prongs are missing.

    Those were not panzer headsets, though similar in appearance. Actually for bunker use called Festungsfernhörer 39.

    All the non-Panzer headsets also had orange brown pads early in the war, but if you have a panzer one that is really great.
