Check out this beauty. Original paint, confirmed by Stephane, jerrycan, and with waffenamt stamp and red 20 marking.
Thanks Ade, I did miss that.
Phil, this one was sold for $595
Never heard of fake or fantasy jerry cans; that would be too much!!!
I have had one of these for many years, and I believe it is real, as the price I paid back then, wouldn't be worth making repro's of them.
SS Jerricans are very real and not fantasy. Mine originally came from a farm in Normandy for £5.
But they are now repro'ed in the Czech Republic. Funny thing was in their original (fake) production run they got the Runes back to front and came out as a mirror image!
When you're wounded and left of Afghanistan's plains,
An' the women come out to cut up what remains,
Jest roll to your rifle an' blow out your brains,
An' go to your Gawd like a soldier." - Rudyard Kipling
