Default Attic find Kriegsmarine camo gm30 Microphone

Straight out of an attic in Hamburg. Very salty can but obviously camoed blue over green. The mask was overpainted in grey. Mask, can and Filter are named to "Hohmann". The Feldpost reference says he was a member of the Marine Flak Abteilung 1 in Stettin. Very nice to see he got a Tropendichtring in his can.

Another great score! I think you have one of the largest GM collections out there

Best regards,

Another very nice original set with a bit of history to go with it ! As it has a tropendichtring should the base have been stamped with a D ? Well done Hagen

Thanks Jan, indeed these gas masks are my personal favourite equipment. I started collecting them when i was 12 years old. With them everything else started

Yes, there is a "D" at the bottom!

Can someone explain the “D”. From what I know it stands for Wasserdicht or water proof. What is the significance of Tropendichtring and “D”. I have some with and without the “D”. Thanks for the education!

Good question. Furthermore, there were found examples without "D" but with Tropendichtring:

http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...d.php?t=908275

and I believe most of "D" cans are found without it.

All "D" cans I`ve seen were made from thinner steel sheets so I think that "D" was simply stamped on all produced cans from maybe 1942 on, no matter if they were equipped with Tropendichtring or not . However, I would also be grateful for explanation of this from more experienced collectors.
