Default WH or LW breadbag?

Hello gents,

Here let me upload early type breadbag with leather reinforcement on belt loop.
The color is bit bluish comparing to later type of breadbag. I guess it was issued for Heer but still not sure.

Leathers are painted with greenish field-grey. I think this paint was only conducted for early type of breadbag (pre-war?) and changed to black later.

Unfortunately stamp on belt hook is faint and unreadable.

Do you know any clue to know maker or issued period?
I think stamp on below breadbag is very similar but still unclear.

Typical, pre war, grey Heer breadbag with green dyed leather.

The stamp is identical as the one in link.

I can read ;Ver. Lederwarenfabrik and city name Munchen.

Hi anmarlodz,

Thank you for your comment. I see Lederwarenfabrik as company name but what does "Ver." means?

Many thanks,

Tobe

Ver. = Vereinigte

You’re welcome

I checked in the codebook and the only one i could find is

Ver. Lederwarenfabriken, Eugen Huber
München 8, Rosenheimer Str. 17-19 (Bay)

Which had the 3 letter code “ftt”
