Made of a tan canvas construction, this pneumatic (or manual) life vest is in VERY GOOD used condition. Manufactured later in the war, it features a manual inflation tube, as well as various straps to secure to the user.
It is 100% complete, however one of the manual inflating hoses is missing, and the other one is damaged (see pics). Some fraying and wear to the cotton straps. The AMAZING feature is that the air bottle still contains all the original air!! Obviously not to be used in a survival situation, due to the age. Would make a SUPERB addition to any collection or display!Most of my items are vintage, and as such are AS-IS, so you must therefore expect a degree of wear due to age and/or usage. Although my passion is the Me109, I do offer many other German Aircraft Fw190, Me262, etc. , as well as USAF and Japanese items. Occasionally I do offer many non-vintage items such as prints and art relating to the time period.
