Original very late war zeltbahn. It is made from a lower grade material which shows printing errors as well as some fading. This is a simplified pattern where the center bottom rope and grommets were eliminated along with the smaller grommets for rope on the bottom corners. It has no grommets on the three corners, though there are holes. I can not say for sure the grommets are missing as there really isn't anything to indicate they were ever installed.
It has Bakelite rather than aluminum or steel buttons. It is missing about 15 buttons in total. There are no markings. The darker side shows a lot of fading. The lighter side still has nice color; the pictures don't really do the colors justice. If you are like me, and you love splinter pattern, then this will be one of your favorites. If I were to try to date this, I would say it is likely very late 1944 or even 1945 given the amount of cut backs in manufacturing.
