Original German Pre-WWII Officer M35 Leather Dispatch Map Case - dated 1937
Original Item: Only One Available. Map cases were issued on a limited basis to specifically designated personnel such as unit commanders, pilots, and observers. The M35 map/dispatch case was based on the Weimar era, Reichsheer pattern map/dispatch case with minor variations. The M35 map/dispatch case underwent a front closure modification in mid-1936, and an additional small front pocket was added in 1938, although the early pattern cases continued to be manufactured through-out the war.
Made of a light brown, pebbled leather, this first pattern M35 map case is in very good used condition! It features a fold-over top flap with a vertical closure strap, as well as various pockets for a ruler, pencils, and various other map accessories. The rear has two vertical belt loop straps and buckles. Interior has two compartments with a central leather separators.
The rear of the case is dated 1937, and the inside of the case bears ink stamps. One of these is a box with a Weimar Eagle to the left, and BMVtdg / 75 to the right. There are also some faded markings above this, which we can not make out, but would often be company markings. An excellent opportunity for further research!
A very nice piece of genuine German WWII field gear, ready to research and display!
