    This happened to my pictures too. If bonobobucket think they'll get me back with such actions they got it all wrong. In the mean time I bought a similar chair on our local fleamarket, not a military on, but certainly an older version . It was only 3 euros.

    The 566 is the production run number and the mark near the ear will probably be ET68 which indicates the shell was made at Eisenh├╝ttenwerk, Thale.
