You are bidding on a VERY NICE use example of a WW2 German Luftwaffe Issue Map Case as used by the German military throughout WW2!
Map cases were issued on a limited basis to specifically designated personnel such as unit commanders, pilots, and observers. The M35 map/dispatch case was based on the Weimar era, Reichsheer pattern map/dispatch case with minor variations. The M35 map/dispatch case underwent a front closure modification in mid-1936, and an additional small front pocket was added in 1938, although the early pattern cases continued to be manufactured through-out the war. Made of a light brown leather, this first pattern M35 map case is in EXCELLENT used condition! It features a fold-over top flap with a vertical closure strap, as well as various pockets for a ruler, pencils, and various other map accessories. The rear has two vertical belt loop straps and buckles. Interior has two compartments with a central leather separator. Has a clear manufacture name stamped into the leather, as well as a manufacture date of 1936. The leather is VERY SOFT, but as you can see in the photos, features some wear and marks.
Comes complete with 3 German Maps; a set of Pencils; an Eraser; and Map Compass! A VERY NICE combat used example, it measures approx. 8″ x 10″ in size. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
