Default Rucksack ... looks to good not tobe a repro. Opinion needed...

This rucksack was picked upsome days ago on a fleamarked here in Germany by a friend , sold by a young lady using it as fashion item until that point of time. Source unknown.
For sure it has some "markers" identifying it as GErman made military item, but for me it looks to good to be of 40ies vintage.
So the question to the experts: Can that be a "near to mint" WH rucksack from the late 40ies ? Or is it just a reenactores repro finding it`s was to that young girl by chance...?









Thanks for some input ...

Jens

Jens, that would be the most appropriate use for this ruck.

Seems likely since the leather was either pre-stamped with a RBn Number, or the habit was really hard to break.

First "parts" ruck I have seen.

IMHO it is not a postwar rucksack, but one of many late war variation of WH rucksack.
