Large Map Case for Generals or Senior Staff, dated 1977.
In brown leather. Very large 10 ½ x 13 ½ size makes tis map case noticeably different than the standard 8" x 13" officer model The interior is also drastically different, with additional dividers and straps, and integral leather fold- out for pencils, eraser etc. Comes complete with all original parts intact including the adjustable shoulder sling. Inside flap shows Karl Marx Factory markings with an April 1977 date of manufacture.
Condition is very good to excellent overall, showing what looks like mostly storage age. There is a small area on the back where the leather is scratched, but it wouldn't be visible if the map case is displayed as a part of General's uniform. There are only very mild marks to the exterior; the leather appears almost as good as new. The interior is very clean. There is no musty "warehouse smell."
An extremely hard to find piece of military equipment, this map case would be a superb addition to a filed uniform of a Soviet general.
Please note, pencil in our photo is for size reference.
