    Default Imperial German Entrenching Tool and Cover.

    I recently picked up this example of a German WW1 entrenching tool and cover. There are still remains of field grey paint on the blade however I was unable to see a manufacturers mark as in some areas the paint is quite thick.The cover is still in good condition, quite supple and date stamped 1917. There is a manufacturers stamp which appears to be J.Gottleib Sohn ????A.G.H. The leather is also unit marked but a little hard to decipher.

    That's a beautiful set! The manufacturer's marking says J. G. Lieb Söhne, Biberach 1917 and the unit stamp seems to be for 2./J. R. 17

    J. G. Lieb was known as a manufacturer of firefighting equipment, but they also produced helmets and the like for the German military during WW1. One example was posted here on WRF a while back.

    Found a little bit of information about the company here (in German).

    That’s some great information CSW. Thank you very much for your time! I tried to find some information on J.G. Lieb Sohn, but not having the full title of the manufacturer, I was finding it very difficult.
    Not surprising that they made Pickelhaubes as well, I’ve read of toy factories tooling up to make them as well.

    A great pick up Andy. Your on a roll. Can't wait to see what is next!
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Thanks Michael! I’m looking forward to finishing this one. Eventually, I’d really like to represent a Stormtrooper, however, that one is many $$ away. But I’ll enjoy the journey, while collecting the pieces.
