Default Dating this Gas Mask Canister

Hi everyone!

I am looking for some help dating this german gas mask canister. My largest concern was the color of the canister straps. My others are all a heavier webbed yellow color. I was comforted with the numbering on the lid however.

Any information would very much appreciated! Thank you in advance!

Take care,
Will

Luftschutz gasmask canister with typical AUER stamping and typical 'light' carrying straps. I guess you won't be able to date it as all of those are simply unmarked.

Thank you very much for the information! Do you know if these Luftschutz canisters remained with the same design throughout the war?

Thanks again!
