    Default Gas Mask Canister Markings

    Hello, Equipment Gurus. I have limited knowledge in gas mask canisters...OK, NO knowledge. I am awaiting further pics on a canister that is local to me. For now I have one pic of the year and a stamping under the year. I am not familiar with the stamping. Is it a pre-war stamping, or a post war re-issued stamping, etc? Any help would be greatly appreciated. I will upload more pics when I receive them. Thanks!

    Shows Bundeswehradler equipment marking for reuse IMO.

    Agree with Ade, a pre war stamp. Seen it on other items in the past. How much is the seller asking for it?

    Cheers

    $40 USD but it's the canister only, no mask. Also has some surface rust. Hoping for better pics today.

    Hello,
    That's a Reichswehr WaA stamp. Those were used until circa 1937 for Gasmasken.
    Thanks

    100% Reichswehr and original item. I have not ever seen that someone tries to fake a Reichswehr stamp:-). As for the price - $40 is not too much.

    PS. WaA62 is the maker code of the tin.
