    Description: Hello. Now here we have a very rare Kriegsmarine item to show and tell. This was taken from U-1009 before it was scuttled off the Northern Irish coast after the surrender during 'Operation Deadlight' on November the 25th 1945 where they scuttled 110 surplus U-Boat's (The number's are listed in a book and U-1009 is on the list!). This was kept in a tool box and used by the Veteran's son in mechanic's in postwar time's. It's some kind of pressure guage and still work's perfectly when you push the needle in at the bottom and very precise. The original box has been hand made and even has the KM bird with M stamped on the side of it and appart from some tape mark's is in perfect order and slide's open like a wooden pencil case. Super rare item for that special collection and probably impossible to find another. Nice item and price is firm on this one or will trade for the right item like a battlefield recovered SS Helmet with a reasonable decal lol
