    Default Early 1939 337

    Matching including cleaning rod. This Gustloff was Vet returned to New Zealand from North Africa.
    I was recently allowed to photograph this for the Forum from a old German collection in Christchurch.
    Enjoy Alister.

    DAMN that is one hard to find code in any condition, espcially original and matching. Excellent job on the photos! Thanks for sharing!
