Original stakes for the German cape-tent or Zeltbahn, model 1892. The exact production date is unknown. Suitable for WW1 and WW2 reenactment. However before and during World War II other models of pegs from different materials appeared.

These stakes made of wood with metal blued tips, fastened with nails. At the blunt end is a screwed in pin for the rope of the tent.

See the tab "Historical reference" on the history of this item and its variants.

We have thin pegs (wooden detail 20x13 mm in cross section, total length of the peg 27-27.5 cm) and thick pegs (wood 22x17 mm, length 27 cm). German pegs were usually “thin”, but the thick ones have only minor difference (try to distinguish them in the photo) and, perhaps, were also used by the Germans...

The tent set usually included 2 stakes, 1 part of the pole and a rope. Price for one stake.
