Hi Everyone,
I stumbled about this old topic and just wanted to ask for some further informations. There are few masks shown in book releases that seem to be accepted originals and show the same construction like this one...
Can anyone provide further details why this one seen here is wrong? Just curious...

Thanks in advance!
Stefan

Hi,
can´t post pictures but one is shown in "Waffen SS Camouflage Uniforms and Post-War Derivatives" by Daniel Peterson, another is shown in the book by Beaver and Borsarello, you can see it in this topic:

I have those references, so will look it up knowing "what's in a book doesn't mean it is always right", plus the fact that while it might be for cold weather protection doesn't mean it is a "sniper" item. And certainly not a splinter item being labeled "SS sniper" from that auction.
