    This is an ammo pouch for the Mauser 88...After a google search I was able to find one in the same condition, with name-tag as well (!) being offered online for $55...

    It is infact a Model 1874/87 ammo pouch, for holding cartridges for the Mauser G71 and later the G88, the owners name tag is for a "Musketier" (rifleman) of the 7th Company of the "Metzer Infanterie-Regt. Nr.98" garrisoned at Metz, which was part of XVI Armee Korps. A nice pouch that is slowly becoming a rare piece. At the begining of WW1 some troops, especially "Landwehr" units were still using these older style pouches.
    Prost ! Steve.
