Stamps for personal kit items

Last updated on June 14, 2021

Here are some stamps I have made up for marking reenactment gear and personal equipment. The large “Heerseigentum” stamp was copied from a marking originally stamped on the back of a mirror that hung in a Heer barracks room. Similar stamps were used to stamp all kinds of barracks furniture as well as various articles of Army property. The “Wehrmacht-Packung 1943” and “Wehrmacht Heer” stamps are essentially fantasy designs inspired by the various types of property markings found on personal kit items from rations to razor blades. I find that stamps like these when used sparingly can add realism to reproduction packaging of various kinds.
