Original WWII combat army gas mask with case, DVF 1939 German model

We offer original Bulgarian royal army gas mask used in WWII.  Gas mask is in full set - completes with canvas bag with shoulder strap, and gas mask’s filter.


As German ally during the two world wars, Bulgarian army was equipped with German accoutrements or such made in Bulgarian after German model.
Such is the gas mask we have here – it is modeled after the "Gasmaske 200 model 109" from 1933 of the Draeger factory. This last one gave the producer license to the Bulgarian state factory – DVF (Durjavna Voenna Fabrika) in the town of Kazanluk. The factory produced two main types gas masks. The first earlier one (which we offer as well) is of metal flap situated aside. While the second later model has a rubber flap based on a bakelite body, placed at front.

Such is the gas mask we offer here. There is a black bakelite corpus at front. In its upper part is screwed the filter. Below is the exhalation flap. On the flap is seen the king Boris III coat of arms - a standing on a
shield lion with the royal crown above. Below are the DVF letters standing for Bulgarian military factory. The inner rubber very well preserved.  The gas mask has stretching straps marked on inside.

The filter keeps the original label that gives details on the gas mask use: "Gas mask filter of type 1, number …. Tested on 5. XI. 1936 g. Keeps from all acid gas and all types smokes and fogs".
The filter is still sealed with piece of cardboard with instruction stamp: "wrap the cap before use the breading part". Filter is rarely preserved, absolutely authentic. Even the paper label is still visible.

The original canvas bag is also identical to the German model one.  There is a small pocket keeping special type fog lences. If needed they should be placed over the normal lences. VG condition!
 
Rare original WW2 item in authentic VG+ condition !
Gas mask is never used, original powder covering the inside could still seen! 


PLEASE NOTE the dates on the labels and stamps may differs slightly ( from 1936 up to 1939) , as well as the condition which is overall VERY GOOD!
