    Officer's or NCO's leather map case, made in Soviet-Occupied Eastern Germany or Poland, circa late 1940s.

    Officer's or NCO's leather map case, made in Soviet-Occupied Eastern Germany or Poland, circa late 1940s.

    Very early post-war manufacture, showing many of the same features of 1930s map cases carried by Red Army officers during the war. Measures 10"x 7" closed; 14 " horizontally when opened. In beautiful orange toned leather, typical of the high quality leatherwork produced by East German workers for their new masters immediately after the war's conclusion. We have also seen similar map cases manufactured for the Soviet Army during the same period in the parts of Poland that had been previously under Nazi occupation. Contains celluloid map protectors and a single compartment, expandable to hold several maps and perhaps a notebook. There is what appears to be a trace of manufacturer's stamp on the inside flap, very faint and completely illegible. The map case includes original leather shoulder strap and carabiner loops.

    Very good overall condition. The thick leather is supple and nice, showing light service wear only, and retains most of its original sheen. There are some minor indentations and spots, mostly immediately below the flap, but not tears, excessive rubbing or significant stains.The phrase "used but not abused, certainly applies here. A once over with a quality leather preparation is not called for but would probably be beneficial. The celluloid map protectors are unfogged and show no cracking.
