You are bidding on a SUPERB example of a NEW OLD STOCK WW2 German Wehrmacht / Luftwaffe M30 / M38 Maskenbrille Gas Mask Eye Glass Set! These masks were issued to all Luftwaffe and Wehrmacht personnel who required glasses 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 aluminum, glass, and steel, this M30 / M38 pattern “Maskenbrille” Eye Glass Set is in EXCELELNT unused condition, and all the straps and buckles are intact! They retains 98% original paint, but as they were never issued, do not feature any corrective lenses. The attached paper tag on the bridge, indicates the serial number M5860 (possible Kriegsmarine?). They come in the original case, and also features the owner information card for eye glass specifications! The case itself does show some wear, scratches, and marks, but it still has the original liner, as well as a set of spare straps for the glasses. Has a matching serial number on the case. Would make a PERFECT addition to any collection or display!

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.
