There is some debate if these are war-time or post-war pouches. This is my "take" of the subject. Those that don't have one consider them post-war. Those that have one in their collection claim them to be original 3rd Reich. You can decide, but I will help you a little, if I may be so bold and offer the following info. I bought several of these in Czechoslovakia, before the wall came down. They were still full of original German WWII MG stuff. Some collectors think they are post war Austrian, but these were behind the iron curtain, left there after the war by the Germans. The construction and material are typical German WWII. They are post war marked, as the Czechs used them after the war. It was standard policy to mark German surplus gear for the Czech Army after the war.
