176) A good original wartime Civilian gas mask and issue box. The box is a little tatty and worn but still good and strong. it has some old Sellotape to the bottom (see photos) this is old and will peel off but may leave the paper feeling sticky. The gas mask is in nice order and is a good size large. the rubber is supple with no cracking just dusty from storage. The eyepiece shows some minor creases to the surface but is in good condition. The head straps show dirt and some rust staining. They are still good and strong. the rest is again in good order with minor dust. It is dated 1940
