  1. Came across this early dark red version of the MX 212/U Flashlight. I have seen them in pink (the "famous one") and yellow / Black. So I´m wondering if this one could be a WWII version of the MX 221/U.


    Yes, I know WWII flashlights usually where marked TL-122.

    Maybe some one knows more about the MX 212/U history - meaning when did they come out first....


    Will post pictures in a second...



  2. I absolutely have no idea - I´m not at all interested in German military items. I thought the acorn looks very much like the one in your 1st picture. So I assumed some sort of US knot and because of blue thread I assumed infantry. Mine has a different "slider" and cord but I thought it could be just from a different period. Iwill try to look for similar pictures on Google...


    Wasn´t there something like a regulation for knots? I mean almost everything had some sort of regulation in the military...

  3. The Dutch M3 are a bit wider and often have the NSN Number with 17 for the country (12 for Germay, 00 and 01 USA, 17 for Netherlands....) printed where the US M3 has the Medical Corps stamp - thats at least what I have observed.


    Nervous - I have pretty much the same bag and it came filled with US medical stuff. I guess this is an early - probably WWII M3 medic bag.


    I actually had 2 of them but one sold several years ago and I only kept the nice one.

    The other ne I had was marked with "New York Drop Cloth Co" or the like - I will check for pictures...

  4. I´m not collecting sword knots but this knot once came in a lot of stuff from different periods.

    I have no clue but I´m guessing an infantry officers knot but I have no idea what period it could be.

    Its all goldish metal wire with some blue.


    Can someone ID this knot?


  5. Are these legit or not. Being honest, I never had an original in my hands but these somehow do not look legit to me. However - I´m really not sure. The stamp looks usual - all stamps I have seen so far had a different font. This font looks a bit like a "potato stamp" and the straps appear to be too wide. There probably have been variants but I´m just not sure... I have some doubts...This is the only picture I have.


    What you WWII Airborne expert think?





  6. I see no need for snaps I don´t think they mere modified for claiming to be Airborne liners. I guess they are theater props but who knows.


    Straps are for sure bogus but I just bought them because of the very rare chance that they are later modified but "probably" original NB Trials helmets.

    As I said - who has seen an original NB Trials liners before? No loss at all and I´m not feeling fooled, parts alone where worth the money.I´m also glad I placed no higher bid. I just paid around 35€ each and that's well worth the sweat band, neckband and leather strap.


    You can watch Judgment at Nuremberg online and the decals on their helmets look much larger so I doubt these liners are from this particular movie.The original decals on the liners you see on pictures of the original trial are smaller. I doubt there were many variants back then - if at all.
