You are bidding on a FANTASTIC set of UNISSUED WW2 German Heer Luftwaffe M30/M38 Gas Mask Lenses! These masks were issued to all Luftwaffe and Wehrmacht personnel throughout WW2.
With the development of poisonous gases used as offensive weapons throughout WW1, appropriate defensive gasmasks had to be developed. The early M1915 and 1917 gasmasks evolved into the M24, and eventually into the M30 and M38 versions. All German Army and Airforce personnel were issued a gas mask, carry canister and accessories, and were required to have them ready at all times.
Made of celluloid and retained in their original paper wrapping, these Gas Mask Lenses are in SUPERB NOS condition! Part of a complete box of 125 individual sets, they are in PERFECT unused condition! Some slight marks and wear to the paper wrapping, but nothing that detracts. Manufacture date is 1944, as stamped onto the original box, along with manufacture information. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!
Please note that you are bidding on ONE set of lenses, NOT the complete set of 125 as shown in the first photo.
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.
