Waffen ss Zeltbahn Oak B opinion needed...
what do you think of this WSS Zelt ?
here is the description :
- Zelt fabric is in EXCELLENT condition, clean, strong and without dry rot or mold. This is early war fabric - tightly woven and excellent quality compared to later war Oak zelt fabric. One small 1cm L tear and several small less than pencil sized holes. The right bottom corner has been period repaired and large eyelet replaced - see photos.
- PRINT colours are still bright a sharp on both sides with very little to no sun fading evident when compared to the unexposed zelt panel fabric of the head hole.
- Nicely stamped with an RBNr.
- With the exception of the head hole, there are no buttons on this zelt. To be honest, I cannot tell whether this zelt originally had them because there doesnt seem to be the needle holes one normally sees where buttons have fallen off. (We do know that SS zelts were issued without buttons during the latter part of the war). Some of the button holes have 2 small cuts (see photos) close to the end of them and some of the bottonholes have a thread grouping coming out close to the tail where the button would have been but I couldnt find any Button thread needle holes. There are also some original locating drill holes that were done at the factory to show workers where to place the buttonholes and buttons on the facings.
I give a 100000% return guarantee that this is an original WWII German item
