Default Feldfernsprecher 33 plug

Hello

My german field phone plug has a spring instead of a rubber. Is it just a variant ?

normal late war variant.
I see them on my phones from 1943 and later.
Almost the same time span as the missing middle prong.

best regards Sven

Late war with the springs


Missing middle prong but still with rubber piece


Later war but still black paint, but with the spring on the plug

Very nice Feldfernsprecheren.

That phone with the bread bag carrying strap, is that a field modification(?)

Is it possible to use a breadbag strap ?

It could be a field modification. Two brackets are very neatly welded onto the original sideplates. But it can easily be a post war mod.

Normally breadbag straps don't fit.

best regards Sven
