Title Set of ammunition pouches, model 1911
Nationality German
Period 1937 & 1939
Price £70.00

These are the standard Wehrmacht issue from 1933 on, replacing the 1909 type which carried 60 rounds as opposed to 30 in the later model. In this case, one is a Berlin product, the other being made in Vienna - a regular 'anschluss'! Although they are not strictly a pair, they have obviously been together for some time.

There is a possibility that these started out as Luftwaffe or Orpo pieces, as they would appear to have been dyed black on top of an original brown finish. They would have been worn on either side of the belt buckle and secured in place by the Y-straps.

The leather is in generally good shape, though somewhat worn and slightly scuffed with use and age. The stitchng on the securing straps is a little frail in places. They have aluminium rivets and fittings throughout.

If you want to comment on this item—re quality, age, etc—please email me.

testimonials

[From a vendor, rather than a buyer]

I'm delighted that you are happy with the badge and I hope you can sell it to someone who will value owning it.

I tried to sell it on eBay but they won't accept Nazi items. I then contacted several dealers via a Google search who mostly offered me 40-50 after some haggling. Most of the other dealers tried to conceal its true value in their replies and also lacked manners which doesn't inspire confidence.

Ultimately it's about trust. I should think that most prospective sellers have done their own research and therefore know roughly what their item is worth. You were the only dealer who had the integrity to concede that my valuation was approximately correct and I respect your comment that you can't offer this as you need to make a profit. Your honest approach is greatly appreciated and I felt comfortable taking the risk in sending it to you.

Thank you for a smooth transaction
