I am not sure of the age involved? I believe that Landespolizei was Weimar era, but do not know for sure.

This kit is approx., 7 inches long by 3.5 inches wide.

It contains a metal pull through, cloth, cotton pull through, plastic tipped brush and a bottle of oil.

It says Landespolizei fur Wurttemberg-Hohenzollern on the lid, and on the inside and rear it has Malles Rolf, but no waffen stamps or year stamps.








Any help or if others have these?

Ed :p

These cleaning kits have identified as being West German in the past and have seen many of these during the past 25 years or so.

have 2 of them, Württemberg is one of our 16 counties in Germany! The Oil is typical for German guns : Ballistol is a oil for guns, but also for some healing of dogs and anymals if they are wounded.
This set was in use for the Walther PP/PPK´s and Unique Pistols in use after WWII by German Police.
Today Ballistol is not as good as other sintetik oils to prevent rust.

Ed,

this cleaning box is definitely post war. To be exact: made between 1946 and 1952, as the state Württemberg-Hozenzollern was formed by the French military Government in 1946. In 1952 Würrtemberg-Hohenzollern and the other two post war formed south-west states Würrtemberg-Baden and Baden merged to the new federal state Baden-Württemberg. Consequently, Würrtemberg-Hohenzollern existed only for a short period.
