Default Patronentasche Ammo pouch for K98k variety

My first piece of Patronentasche Model 1911. Single pocket, with reinforced one side of flap and brass parts. Marked with 17 on the end of strap. I bought it with my father on local antiques fair some 35 years ago. Still in my collection.

Default Brown ammo pouches 1941

Matching pair of unblackened ammo pouches dated 1941. When former Soviet-Russian werehouses for long term storage of military stuff had been opened, it started to be easier to find nice, even matching ammo pouches. Unfortunately most of them had all metal parts painted and in some cases internal dividers were removed.

Default Pre war Patronentaschen 1935

Nice, matching pair of 1935 dated Patronentaschen. I find it very difficult to get matching pre war ammo pouches.

I am correct stating that this is black Patronentasche with Luftwaffe Beklaidung Amt stamp? Pouch is 1940 dated and stamp indicates 41.
