Default M38 Gas Mask

Hi to All,

Are M38 gas mask made of green rubber much rarer than the black rubber ones?
Thanking you all in advance and hoping to hear from some of you very soon.

Regards, juno44

Not really, but greener ones are a bit more difficult to find (specially a size 1 green GM38)

Green rubber are simply earlier variants of the same type of gasmasks. Green rubber was used to make gasmasks up to 1942 and later black one were introduced ( simply green dyed rubber was more expansive than black one - in other words; war economy ).
The same case with VM 40; pre war and early variants were green rubber and than black rubber varaints were introduced ( war economy effact - same or similar quality for lower costs ).
