This type was used between 1938 and 1945. The German Gemaschen were designed to cover the soldier's boots from the ankle up to prevent snagging, and keep stones, mud, dirt, dust etc.
From getting inside the soldier's boots. Made of canvas and leather, this is an EXCELLENT and 100% ORIGINAL set! Maker marked (hard to read), and though are near matching, have different colored leather. Easily identifiable as being war-time (as opposed to post-war) due to the construction and materials. Some marks and wear but VERY SOLID otherwise.Overall an VERY NICE and interesting set... Would make a FANTASTIC addition to any collection or display. Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage.
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. Use is solely based on my authorization only. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Militaria\WW II (1939-45)\Original Period Items\Germany\Personal, Field Gear".
