Default Ww2 german flashlight?

Hi,

I have in my hands a flashlight made in baquelite, with it seems a German Nazi eagle stamped inside.

I have no idea if this kind of flashlight, as is the first time I have seen one.

If original period 1933-1945 manufactured which is the market value, for this flashlight?

Thank you

Hi,

2 more photos with close ups of the markings.
The 41 I presume made in 1941?
What kind of markings are the others?

thank you for help

Hi

Perfectly original (imho black out) light.... the lense dark blue if i’m not mistaken...

Made by “cnn” (= Robert Karst, Elektrotechn. und Metallwarenfabrik, Berlin)

The other stamp is a Stylized MPD stamp which is the “Material Prüfungsamt Dahlem (near Berlin)

The Z1 is the producer of the bakelite : Internationale Galalith-Gesellschaft Hoff & Co., Hamburg-Harburg

The “Nazi Eagle” is a waffenamt stamp...... 584??? These are placed by inspectors who inspect the items for the wehrmacht


I would say, buy a flat 4,5V battery and see if it works !!
