Swiss 1940s FEGA C-Maske Gas Mask w/ Storage Can
Swiss vintage gas mask manufactured circa 1938 by FEGA (Feuerschutz Gasschutz). The C-Maske is a civil defense gas mask that is modeled after the military version, the GM-33. The difference between the earlier manufactured military issued GM-33 and the civil defense C-Maske is that the C-Maske is primarily rubber or silicone construction and features a direct-thread filter canister, while the GM-33 is a rubberized canvas and has a hose leading to the filter canister. Mask has a three-point adjustable harness.
Canister threading appears to be 40mm but we do not have modern 40mm filter canisters available to test whether or not they are compatible. Canisters are marked with "CIVILE" and are stamped from 1938 to 1940. All filter canisters are unsealed.
Includes metal storage canister with khaki webbing. Inside of upper lid has an accessory storage container that may contain a cleaning cloth and/or replacement anti-fog lenses. We do not guarantee that the accessory compartment is complete.
