I'm not sure that it is original WWII it might be early post war.

The picture is made from a very bad angle.

The small leather belt on the cover and the thick piece of leather are for holding the Dutch helmet.

Unfortunately the leather appears to be stiff so I'm not interested.

Doesn't say anything about selling it. If leather is stiff use some oil (forget what type I used) for about a week or so. let it absorb then would be fine. Thats what I did with my German WW2 rucksack! :D

RHaught, okazii.ro is a Romanian site similar to eBay. Everything posted there is for sale.

I think this is a genuine M.1939 Romanian knapsack. Unfortunately in the photo not all the details are visible. I’ll be very curious to see the front sling hooks, from which the cartridge pouches were hang up. They should be in aluminum as the german WW2 model.
The communist model of knapsack, adopted in late 1960s, was a copy of the WW2 model but the fastening straps on the flap are different and it has simplified tin hooks on the front slings.
It seems to be an interesting piece of collection but I don't know what would be the right price.

I have no comments as I would not want to affect the bids.

Well that would explain the for sell part. Too bad not able to have an English version from what I see. Would be able to compete outside of the Romanian market and open new doors for reenactors/collectors. Still, for the stiff leather use mink oil (or something will look to see what I used). With auctions just be careful not to get in a bidding war and still think it is best to go to the flea markets and shops since it is always rewarding to find something and get a better price.

OK, I found the place to register, it appears that they only want people in Romania to register, what is the format of the mobile phone number in Romania. I could not get by that in the registration process. If I can register, at least I can communicate with the sellers.

The mobile phone number is mqde up of 10 numbers

The first two digits are 07, which specify its a mobile network
The third denotes the phone company:
-2 -> Vodafone
-4 -> Orange
-6 -> Cosmote
-8 -> Zapp

And then come another 7 digits

For example, a Vodafone number would be 0722 78 37 90

However I don't remember if they don't send an SMS with a registration code for you to use. I know I received an SMS from them some while ago, when they were restructuring the accounts and everybody had to re-register and they send me a code.

As for experiences with people there, I had so far 3 bad experiences, two times when I was selling and one time when I was buying. In all cases the transaction did not take place anymore. dragos03 had more bad luck.

Unfortunately the guys at okazii.ro are sending an SMS code every time someone wants to register.

@wrmpilot - If you are interested, I can make you an account. I have 2 mobiles, and only 1 of them is registered to okazii.ro. So, there one available, in order to make a new account.

Regarding the scams, on this Romanian sites there are fakers and scammers, just like on e-bay, but on a smaller scale. I had my clashes with them also, but except for those two unfortunate ocasions, everything was just fine.

Best Regards to all,

Al

I have the rucksack here in the US now. Leather is stiff but using lotion to loosen it which seems to be working.

Last year I bought this brand new communist back pack and many equipment straps (good for atatching equipment on the back pack, the canteen on the bread bag and probably other uses), more than in the picture for only 60ron unfortunatly I haven't seen the seller ever since but he had a lot of mint communist era equipment for sale and the fair is now closed.

Added for comparson a photo with a back pack from WWII. I think that the biggest diference is the color of the leather that in WWII was dark grey.
