1935 Dated Unit Marked M34 Army Pony Fur Back Pack
The Model 1934 pack is manufacturer marked and dated 1935. The pack is in excellent used condition, with pliable straps and complete fur on the cover flap. One shoulder strap is unit marked to the 21st Infantry Regiment. That regiment was engaged in the invasion of Russia in 1941. The pack was apparently captured by a soldier in the Red Army, and the name "Sokolov" is written in Russian on the front of the pack, along with other notations, not entirely readable, but likely the unit of the Russian soldier who captured the pack.
