Default 4x 2cm mags....from black to tan

Hi, I took the rainy weather today and cleaned and photographed some stuff of mine that I wanted to do for a while. I have a few 2cm mags that I want to Show here because it is somehow unusual to see These Colours on 2cm mags.

Upfront….all 4 mags are 100% Wehrmacht, no post-war use. Nothing altered, found like this (a lot dirtier of Course) over the last few years, left behind by WH or LW troops.

I have 4 different Colours:
1) black Standard Colour. I think very good condition, but Nothing extraordinary on this ine.
2) greenish. Not quite sure what to think of this one. The coluur is applied by a brush which is clearly visible on the Bottom piece where some hair of the brush has come off. Maybe Reichswehr?
3) yellowish. now darker on pics because I just wiped it. Will be lighter in Colour after a while I think. Not sure if spray painted or brushed.
4) tan. Definately spary painted. My favourite one, of Course.

Hope you like those. If you have similar pieces...post them!

These are all great examples guys, thanks for posting them. Berglers tan one is my favorite.


I never really looked that close at the one I own until after seeing this thread. It is the bluish feldgrau color and also has the small window for the "20".
