    The image above is the backside of next image:



    We found 4 tins in Belgium near Antwerp. 3 of them are the same as this, one was marked 9/41. The 4th is a tin Corned beef "Donald Cook's", made in Brazil.
    We want to know wat is inside the tins, bud dont want to open them.
    Someone told me that it contains chocolat. Is there someone who can confirm this?
    Thak you.

    Hi,

    Found this one today at a car show, the man was using it in his display.
    Probably not rare, maybe the maker ?
    I'm not sure of the date looks like 2/43

    There's some residue of what looks like tape on the side, was this the original shutting?

    cheers Menno
