    Hi John, in actual fact these are modern made fantasy items. They were made some years ago now and continue to turn up at shows.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I dont think so. I was given this tin from a friend who was given some tins by a French chemist who was in the reserve French army and who discovered hundreds of these tins in store still with their contents. I have no reason to disbelieve him as he has many contacts in France because of his collecting of vehicles and artifacts. John.

    Hi John, well, I can only advise. It wouldn't be for me.

    These can also be found in another version. I have borrowed a pic of one from a friend who mistakenly bought one of these.

    Look at the design used. The overt use of the swastika's etc.

    Cheers, Ade.

    I believe this are fakes. I heard many stories about their finding ( one was telling that these were found on scrapjard in Norway, other was telling that these were found in Czech republic , now you are telling these were found in France etc etc)
    I see absloutely no sense in pressing swastikas and DAK shortcut on thin. It is irracional from point of view. Never seen any ORIGINAL period made german item for army use with such look.
