Vintage 1930s French TC 38 Gas Mask with Filter & Canister. The TC 38 mask is the most common Civil Defense mask issued before the WW II. Several millions of these masks have been delivered to the main town population at the beginning of the war in 1939. It is the same mask as the military ANP T 31 unless the hose and the CP 35 C who has an inlet valve in the connecting end of the filter . This mask has been also sold in the commercial market. This item is a double collectible. The item is an actual Gas Mask from the time period, but it was acquired by me for research & development for Sony Playstation. The Gas Mask was utilized as a gaming development prop for the game KillZone and Socom Navy Seal. I do have a business card to prove it. So Do Not Miss This Rare Chance to Own One.
