Interesting, creepy item. WWII German gas mask in box with instruction sheet. The box is rumpled but all there. Embossed on top with product information. Four page instruction sheet has very minor chipping to bottom edge. Gas mask itself looks to have never been out of the box. Rubber is supple with no dry rotting; Just a bit dusty since I don't clean anything except my kitchen. There is writing on the eye lens but since it is backwards I can't really make it out. The canister is tucked inside and can be seen through this same lens. Marked with WaA 533 with an eagle and swaz just in case the person wearing it wanted to know who to thank for having to wear it. What more could a fellow want then interesting AND creepy?
