Default Mkb42 pouch

Dear Gents,

I got an offer for this pouch which I have for sale which I would accept but the buyers is "unsure if it is original". May i ask you to give some opinion about the item please?

http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru....php?t=1021054

It was discussed once about 3-4 years ago with 100% positive feedbacks but can not find the thread any more.

Thank you!

Original no doubt, but missing side, leather loader pocket.

I am raising this thread for educational purposes.

This pouch is not an original but is an at the front pouch. Immer has returned my money so I consider this closed between us. This is an aged at the front pouch with the pocket removed. The first picture is a screen shot of the listing. The second is a screen shot of an at the front new pouch and the others show the pouch and it’s at the front stamp. The material is completely wrong and a person can tell it is not original just by feel. Sometimes things are hard to inspect over thousands of miles.

Thank you for posting this one. Very informative, I admit that I missed that thread somehow and that I didnt noted any red flags when the pouch was on e-stand.
