For your consideration is an exceptional condition & rare Italian shelter quarter in the M19. 29 Telo Mimetico ('camouflage cloth'). This was the only camouflage cloth used by the Italians & the cloth was widely used by the Germans to make camouflage clothing, winter parkas, zelts, etc. Captured Italian shelter quarters were also issued to German troops after they seized stocks of equipment after the Italians surrendered in 1943. Like the German zelt this shelter quarter could also be worn to provide an improvised camouflage garment.This shelter quarter bears all the trademarks of WWII construction; camouflage printed on only one side, woven grommets & brown color vs. The colors are nice & vibrant. Only a few minor holes & just a small stain or two. There is a faint marking on the rear of the shelter quarter - a faint "42" is visible in bluish ink.
All of the brown Bakelite buttons have been removed; this was commonly done by German soldiers. However, all the buttons are included as well as the rope. Italian shelter quarters are almost as rare as the German zelts made in Italian camouflage but are considerably less expensive.
Perfect for a WWII Italian or German display. This item is in the category "Collectibles\Militaria\WW II (1939-45)\Original Period Items\Germany\Personal, Field Gear". The seller is "drifter372" and is located in this country: US.
