German Map Case

Postby Olympiaryan » 12 Jan 2018 21:41

I purchased a map case back in the 1970s and now I've decided it's time to sell.it on. https://rover.ebay.com/rover/0/0/0?mpre ... 2840070648
What does the marking on the clasp mean: TUCK-TITE, USA Patent, Ges.Gesch., Made in Germany

Means this is NOT a WW2 map case, why wold TR items have American and English text. It seems to be an artists supply case BUT NOT in an yway TR Third Reich

Not actually knowing I have to ask why not if made before outbreak of war? Considering how many foreign companies had German branches and vice versa. What I could find online on Tuck-tite, the patent goes back to late 1920s.

A Luftwaffe case features on the website militior.com/288-porte-carte-officier-allemand-seconde-guerre/ with the same catch. And check out the German Helmet Vault which also features the same patent. TUCK-TITE USA Patent 1590400 Ges.Gesch. Made in Germany

There was a discussion about privately purchased map cases on this forum http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/forums/ ... p?t=342899
Not a member and can't see the photos, but from what I can read the one shown in your first post could be a (pre) war period item.
Maybe the whole thing is a TUCK-TITE product as they also made handbags and other similar items.

Having name written in both languages it might be Bulgarian. They also use the cyrillic alphabet. Not sure though if there are differences.
