||Due to the high demand causing high
prices on collectibles from the german 1933-1945 era, there are vast
numbers of scoundrels trying to make easy money. They often sell postwar
items as original ww2 or new artificially aged items. The item on the
left are a postwar waterbottle wich is very similar to the ww2 types.
The production of field gear etc did not stop after 1945 and postwar
items have the smell and apperance as ww2 era productions. E.G the ZF-4
scope was used after ww2 and produced. Other items are stil in use and
production today, e.g the belts and beltstarters for the MG34 and Mg42.
