A very rare, rarely offered german Wehrmacht mustard gas decontamination tablet container (Gelbkreuz Entgiftungsmittel).
We had the big luck to get a bigger depot find of this rare containers.
This container is the rarest version of the well known Losantin-Containers. They were used for decontamination of mustard gas.
Every german soldier had to carry them with his anti-gas equipment.
Normaly they had rectangular containers, but in the later war this round and much bigger containers where produced in a small edition.
The container is 8,5cm high and has a diameter of 3,4cm.
The container is unopened but empty as the losantin has oxidised.
The “Losantin”- adhesive tape has lost adhesion.
An extremely hard to find and very rarely offered container in nice condition!
