Article about: can arrived just now...I think I like it. here are more rust, or holes, or big dents. the color is almost like grey-brown - and maybe there was some sand color under this one at on

    Please excuse an idle comment, but it seems curious to me that a wartime item would be stamped with word 'Austria' as its country of manufacture - its in English and I'd not have expected it to be used after the Anschluss in any case. If this is correct, I'd be interested to hear the explanation of why this would be used in 1943. If the stampings - perhaps the 'Wehrmacht' and date - are modern additions, I wonder how they were put on?

    Oddly enough but interesting, is the fact that Austria Wien 's number 1003 is not listed for 1943 but 1005 Is! You should email that database and send them a photo of your can's markings so that they can be added to the list.

    hey - I went to the main jerry-can thread a few days ago for more input...
    I was fairly sure, that it was an original can - just wasn't 100% sure with the paint.
    now it seems, that the paint is original...and yes, I won it. (for a laugh of a price, for noone else was biding...for like 15 USD!)

    it should arrive any day now...'will update.


    PS: yeah, I think I'll send in the pic for that site...
