    I also thought it was post war, but still needed to double check.
    I will ask the seller.
    Thanks.

    If you check the sticky at the top of this forum you will see a late model one with the plate inside.

    Hello,
    I cannot comment the messkit itself as photos are too small, but the inner plate is for sure postwar Bundeswehr. It's too tall and has the horizontal slit....
    Check my sticky thread about TR german military messkits and you'll see how an original late war inner plate looks like.
    Thanks

    Thanks JPhilip I was just there and you are right there is quite a difference in the height as well as the vertical slit.
