These are POST-WAR German zeltbahn poles. They are identical to wartime poles, except they are 3/4" longer than the original. So they are 15 1/4" overall length.If you have an excessive amount of negative feedback or you have left an excessive amount of negative feedback your bid will be canceled because I'm tired of doing business with crybabies who file disputes with paypal or ebay before contacting me.

I want to make sure my buyers are happy so I will work with you as long as you communicate with me. If you are the winner of this auction, I will send an invoice within one day of auction end.
