Default Pioneer Sturmgepäck re-united

Hi guys

Sometimes is pays off to wait !!

I’d like to show you my re-united pionier sturmgepäck !

10 years ago, grndevil44 showed his pio backpack, and i was quite thrilled to see it was the same maker as my side packs, so of course i asked if he would sell/trade it to me......
http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=336577

10 years later he contacted me and asked if i was still interested.... well what do you think ....

We finaly arranged to swap things, and here she is



Here the maker mark on both items





And again, i am a happy person.....

I figured out the maker is J. Weidinger, Wien (somewhat difficult to read from the pics but i can see it clearly .....)

Found out it had to be : Josef Weidinger’s Söhne, Wien 62, Apollogasse 6 which later used the 3 letter code “kzl”

Again, i would like to thank grndevil44 for this opportunity (even if it had to take 10 years ) to complete my set....

One happy collector, Tom

Great set! Patience pays of. My longest time of waiting for item that I wanted for my collection was 25 years!
