    What does seller want for it? Are they supposed to be marked on bottom portion as well? Do you have pictures of bottom marking? Do they match? I am not huge expert on Mess Kits but have not seen that maker either in my collecting travels.

    The bottom is not marked and they want $125, not 100% sure if I am going to buy it or not, I may pass.

    Looks like a nice piece with original paint. I would have the mess kit experts weigh in on the maker mark and non marked bottom. Good luck and hope it works out well for you.

    Hi

    It's a nice wartime example allright.... and indeed a very strange marking !! never saw something like this before...

    I have some doubts if the lower and upper parts belong together (it looks like the color of the 2 is somewhat different)

    I know late war unmarked examples exist, but I assume these are late war (44 / 45) produced ones, but maybe 43 would also be possible

    Is the red enamel the same on both parts ?? (also asking because the lower part looks a bit darker)

    To be hones 125 sounds too hight, but then again, the marking is very interesting

    Tom,


    Thank you for your response!

    I honestly don't know if the inside is enameled on the bottom as well, I noticed it was darker as well, I haven't seen this in person.

    Bunkers prices can be a little too high for some items ......
