GERMAN MILITARY FIELD PHONE
NEW

Friedrich, Phone Home

From the mid-20th-century German military, this is a fully functional field phone. Weighs in at 8.2 lbs, and comes self-contained in a 10-1/4" x 6-3/4" x 4-1/4" dark brown Bakelite case with a handset on a 4-foot cord, a 52” 2-pin jumper, 25” TT plug cord, ringer crank and a battery holder for the pair of D-cells you’ll need to add. Side has slots for the carrying cord that we don’t have, and the inside lid has a full schematic. Should work with standard stereo speaker wire, and we’d get a pair of these phones if we were you. Small quantity available. These are surplus and have wear and tear on them. We will pick the nicest of the lot.

Matrose Knife

Or do you say Seemannsmesser? Either way, this solid piece of engineering is a German-style sailor’s knife, or deck knife, which you can use as a regular pocket knife. Has a 4-1/4" handle, a 3” blade and a 3-1/2" marlin spike, a tool used in marine ropework. Shaped in the form of a polished metal cone tapered to a point, it’s used to unlay rope for splicing, untie knots, and as a toggle to join ropes under tension in a belaying-pin splice. Argggh, matey. Has a sturdy black plastic handle, and a little ring handle on one end. This is a solid tool with a nice blade.

Made For Chinese Chests

From the Chinese military, this olive drab canvas recon chest rig is made for carrying SKS rounds. We think it’d also be great for fishing lures, balloons (if you’re a balloon artist or a water-balloon tosser), various nails and screws, bolts and washers and probably a hundred other uses. Business part measures 24" wide x 5-3/4" with (6) 4-1/4” deep pockets, (2) at 2” wide and (4) at 1-1/2” wide, all with flaps that close with little plastic clips. Has 4 holders for items in the 7" long range. (Photo shows 7" long tubes inserted) Fits via adjustable crossed shoulder straps and a buckle. We also think it would hold a nice assortment of snacks for hands-free hiking.

Helmet Of Many Armies

These Romanian Army M73 combat helmets are styled after the Dutch M38 helmet, and were used in small numbers in Romania during WWII and up to the 1970s. They’re still in use in some reserve units, and are also currently used by the Afghan National Army. Very dark paint—looks black to us—with black leather fold-down ear flaps and a chin strap. Measure approx 11” x 9-1/4” x 6” with a slightly beaky front. Used but in good condition, considering—and hard to come by.

Swappable Goggles

These wraparound Chinese military goggles have a camo pattern and come with one-piece, long, swappable clear and gray lenses. Also comes with both an elastic headband and standard temples that can be, yes, swapped out. Includes a cleaning cloth and an olive drab quarter-moon-shaped solid plastic case with a pair of clips that are probably meant to attach the case to a pistol belt. Includes instructions in Chinese because the guy who wrote them had no idea the goggles would end up in a warehouse in suburban Chicago.

Miss The Swiss?

Get in touch with your inner Schweizer with an aluminum Swiss military canteen cup. Surplus, and yours might even have a genuine Swiss dent or two. In a perfect oblong, unlike the U.S. kidney shape, they hold 14 oz and measure 4" x 2-3/4” x approx 4” tall with a pair of 2-1/2” folding handles that work better than the U.S. cup handle. All in all, the Swiss seem to have been way ahead of us, canteen-cup-wise.

SOVIET BICYCLE GENERATOR AND LIGHT KIT
NEW

Your Velosiped Needs Lights!

Back in the USSR, they made sure every bicycle (that’s “velosiped” to you, comrade) had a proper light set. Forty years later, we’ve got those classic bicycle light sets in “new” old surplus. New, as in never used. Don’t expect LEDs, folks. This is the real McCoy, straight from the USSR. Headlight is 3-1/4" diameter with a clear front lens and a single metal mounting bracket but no hardware. Rear light is a red reflector style, 3-1/4" x 2-1/2" x 2, with bulb inside and no hardware. But the herring and borscht of this set is the classically styled bike generator with an included spring-loaded bracket.

A retired monk?

Nope--we thought it was a theodolite-- a surveying instrument for measuring angles in horizontal and vertical planes, but it seems we missed the mark. With the help of a knowledgeable Surpie, we’re reasonably sure this olive drab apparatus is an artillery sight for a Chinese howitzer. (See, even we don’t know everything.) Measures approx 7-1/2" x 5" x 4" with a plethora of moving parts: optical head that pivots up and down; focal knob calibrated from 0 to -90 and +10 to + 80; horizontal and vertical adjustments with a locking lever; and a 1-5/8" dia ball with a 1/2" hole in the bottom for a mount. Weighs in at over 5 lbs. The paint is chipping, but you would too at this age.

Military Punch Bowl

From the Romanian military, this olive drab, flask-shaped, insulated 18-liter food container has what appears to be a stainless steel interior, and was probably designed for mush, or gruel, or some of kind of stew to keep the troops warm and awake. But we see it as a portable punch bowl, complete with a large ladle that stores inside when you secure the 6-1/4” dia lid with the simple twist of a wing nut. Not sure we’d actually use it for food or drink, though—more as a collectible. Has burlap-ish backpack straps, and measures approx 16” tall overall x 14-1/2” wide x 9" deep.

From the Italian military, it’s not a pickaxe (piccone) so much as a pick hammer. We’re not sure of the era but it’s well worn. That’s something money can’t buy--only time. The head is 13-1/2” long with a pick on one end and a 1-1/2” square flat head on the other. (We’re thinking for tent pegs.) Head is on a 14” wooden handle. It’s a heavy puppy at approx 4-1/2 lbs, but still compact enough to tote in a kit and swing in a foxhole.
