West German Military Shovel-This is a sound example of a folding shovel with a leather carrier. This is a West German example and is post war but came with a collection I recently purchased. It is nicely marked with “12-121 1532” and dated 1959 on the reverse of the trowel. A green leather case is included and still fits the shovel head nicely with minimal shrinkage. Brown wooden handle has a very nice tone and in very good condition.
