Folding shovel 'gcq 41' + Presstoff carrier 'kog 1942'
A very nice, combat used example of the German folding entrenching tool.
The shovel itself remains in really good condition, and is clearly maker marked with the 'gcq' code, whilst also being dated '1941' and Waffenamt proof marked as well.
The second variation of carrier, produced from Presstoff material, remains complete and maker coded/dated 'kog 1942'. There are also some handwritten initials located within the rear belt loop, as shown.
A honest original example that would make a great addition to any display or combat mannequin!
