The issue M1 respirator is a simple design, consisting of felt material attached to the moulded rubber face piece. The felt material works as the actual filter for large particles of dust and sand. The harness is a simple four-point, adjustable system.
All the masks are used and there is small moth holing to all of them. All have printed and/or moulded specification markings.
These are beginning to become hard to find items, so the price will almost certainly go up in time! Looks great as part of M1938 Helmet and Goggles display - see picture!
