From the photos it looks like a lovely very early Auer10 30-B1 with original early gas cylinder and washers. Interesting that the weight on the label has been changed as well as the life jacket type.
Regards,
Andy

Very nice..


They've used the label and O2 bottle of another type of vest, hence the changes and the -1

A real beuty! Interesting the corrections on the label related to the weight and the technical name of the item. Certainly the leftovers that still exist in the factory that began to produce the new version of lifevest.

Congrats
