Hello, I am new here and have a question on a recently acquired Rucksack. The owners say it is a Wehrmacht Rucksack but I can’t find anything exactly like it anywhere on the web. Very similar, but not exactly. I will try to add some photos here so you guys can take a look and tell me what you think. It appears it was made at Wersa, München in 1941. Any help would be greatly appreciated!

Rick

Common post war construction from original parts either straight from the production line or made from discarded equipment such as Y-straps etc. The most I have were probably used as school bags for kids. Not that uncommon over here.

Best

Thank you Rich, I feel a little betrayed by the company that sold it to me. They said it was an authentic Wehrmacht Heer rucksack.
