Ex-Reichswehr camouflaged MG34 Werkzeug tool box 'bsw 1938'

Ex-Reichswehr camouflaged MG34 Werkzeug tool box 'bsw 1938'

£175.00Price

A scarce and completely untouched example of the early-war Patronenkasten 15 model ammo can for the MG34. 

 

This particular one is finished in an original wartime grey/green reissue paint, over the top of the factory-applied 3-tone Reichswehr camouflage pattern, which is still clearly visible below! 

 

The tin is one of variations with the 3 rivets found to the top edge (pictured). This is a feature which is most often seen on those tins which were repurposed and used to carry the folding Kl. Waffenmeisterwerkzeug tool kit for the MG34/42.

 

It also has the serial number of the MG '319a' with which it was once issued stamped in to the top of the lid. 

 

A real, honest 'been there and seen it' piece of MG related equipment!
