Default BGS Map or Dispatch Case

Hi,

It seems as though the BGS used at least two different kinds of map case? Which kind was most used ? The first or second one?

Mike

first is most common. Not sure, that 2nd type was used by BGS, at least i have not seen it during earlier years. Look more like Polizei model.

There is however another mapcase model used by BGS, but not as common in photos.

Thanks for the information. Here is a picture of the label on the rear of the 2nd model.

ok must be later model from changes in late 60s and 70s, so it make sense, that it would follow Polizei types. I focus on 50s-early 60s and this type was not in use during that time.
