German Army Brown Leather Map Case with Insert

Just acquired this item I have been trying to find for a long while-map case with intact map insert. The clear (plastic?) material on these turns yellow and brittle with age. This one is well marked Heinrich Sohn New Ulm dated 1938 and came through in good condition smile  Enjoy   Barron

Re: German Army Brown Leather Map Case with Insert

Hi Barron, here´s mine. In daylight the color looks like yours. It´s LLG Bauen 1938.
Unfortunately without acetate insert, but someday. . .
Hope you like it!

Re: German Army Brown Leather Map Case with Insert

Nice case Erel! Just wish my case had markings! I was mainly after the insert and a couple other items that came with it-folding fork & spoon, protractor and info on American captor of item! Will display them when confirmed by research!  big_smile  Barron

Re: German Army Brown Leather Map Case with Insert

I was just doing some research on the protractor that I mentioned above with the map case. It was manufactured by Albert Nestler AG located in Lahr (area of Berlin). Factory and equipment were bombed by allies and remains confiscated by French occupiers. Company restarted after war but with Company rather than AG suffix! From what I can tell item was wartime or earlier manufacture and made of an early form of plastic as is another item I will be displaying that is dated mid-war. smile Enjoy!   Barron

Re: German Army Brown Leather Map Case with Insert

Re: German Army Brown Leather Map Case with Insert

Hi Barron! There are specific places for pens, ruler and rubber, but where would be the sharpener? Loose inside the map case?
Regards!

Re: German Army Brown Leather Map Case with Insert

I would think in with the eraser as there is leftover room from the standard size? I just wish I had an eraser! smile  Barron

Re: German Army Brown Leather Map Case with Insert

Very nice! For some reason all I have been finding are mint condition pencils and I worry they are repros? The colored pencils I have came with the case but I don't know how to verify authenticity? hmm   Barron

Re: German Army Brown Leather Map Case with Insert

Yes Barron you are right it is possible they are repros. Certainly the little pencil  in protective metal case is original. It has been found in a trench in Italy. It is worn by long exposure to the weather but writes perfectly.

Ciao Erel
unfortunately I have many maps or map case contents of other countries but not Italians:(
I have only two phrasing books that were issued to the troops before an invasion.

Re: German Army Brown Leather Map Case with Insert

Another item that would have been often used with the map case even though I believe this is an incorrect type-a slide rule. This one I believe was for electrical calculations but it may have just been a name of the instrument. roll These were used for artillery calculations until the pocket calculator was invented in the 1980s. Notice this instrument was manufactured by the same company as the protractor above. Hope you will enjoy! cool  Barron
