You are bidding on a VERY NICE set of WW2 German Wehrmacht / Luftwaffe Dfh.b Kopfhörer (Headphones)! A RARE 1945 dated style, this specific type was used in Tanks and Armoured Vehicles.
In pre-42 Panzer III/IVs (before the introduction of the intercom box 20), the radioman wore the Dfh.b headset. All other crew members wore the Dfh.d headsets, which were connected to intercom connection points (socket box units Z19 or Z20). Dfh.d headsets are easily identified by their small plugs with short stubby prongs. Externally, other than the plug and markings, they were identical to the Dfh.b, but internally they were totally different in their makeup. Because these headsets needed to serve a system that had no amplification, the resistance value is only 54 ohm whereas the Dfh.b is 2000 ohm.
Made of aluminum, steel, and bakelite, this Panzer headset is in EXCELLENT used condition! The earpieces are still fully adjustable, and they retain approx. 95% of their original paint and finish! Both earpieces retain their original markings and indicate:
Being the later type, this is the SIMPLIFIED variant, where the eliminated the leather from the steel headband to save on production costs. Missing the rubber ear pads, but replacements can easily be found. All the original wiring also remains! A FANTASTIC item for any collection or display!

——————- 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.
