It would be a lot easier if the picture were not up side down
They are a mix of war time and post war german mess kits.... the dates indepicate the years so you can see for yourseld which ones are post war....
If you want the maker marks determined, we need better pictures of them....
Also on the lower part of the mess kits, near the handle, are also maker marks... if these are the same, the mess kit is a matching one, otherwise they are put together (impossible tomsay when this happened...)
Can make these pictures get up the right way. i have tried everything i can think of. the last resort was editing them in photoshop and resaving them. i just upload them again and they are still upside down.....urrrrrgh......so annoying. i dont know what the answer is. i have read the threads on it, but nothing works.
