WW2 German Kriegsmarine Schwimmweste – LIFE JACKET #3 – VERY NICE!


Out of stock


You are bidding on an EXCELLENT example of a WW2 German Kriegsmarine Schwimmwest (Life Jacket / Life Preserver), as used by various U-Boat and Ship Crews! 


Made of a tan canvas construction, this pneumatic (or manual) life vest is in VERY GOOD used condition.  Manufactured later in the war, it features a manual inflation tube, as well as various straps to secure to the user.  It is 100% complete, however one of the manual inflating hoses is missing, and the other one is damaged (see pics).  Manufacture markings are present.  Some fraying and wear to the cotton straps.  The AMAZING feature is that the air bottle still contains all the original air!!  Obviously not to be used in a survival situation, due to the age.  Would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display!


Please email me if you need additional photos or information.

 Payment should be made within 7 business days at the end of the auction unless buyer contacts me for other arrangements. I accept all forms of payment. 


 ——————- SHIPPING —————– 

My goal is to ship within 7 days from auction end. However, depending on circumstances, it may take up to an additional 1 week from receipt of confirmed payment. If you need it shipped sooner, please let me know and I will do our best to accommodate.


——————- TERMS OF SALE —————– 

Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. I will describe each auction to the best of my knowledge and take as many photos necessary to ensure you are pleased upon receiving your item. All sales are final, so please make sure your questions are answered to your satisfaction before you purchase. 


——————- ABOUT ME —————– 

Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft (Fw190, Me262, etc.), as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period. As a private collector myself, I am constantly on the lookout for historical memorabilia, authentic photographs, artwork or anything unique relating to military aircraft.
