Help with Mess-Kit Appreciated...
I've come across an Odd One here that I can't quite identify...Seller thinks it's German...I can only speculate that it's either a Late-War Variant that I've never seen before or that it's Reissued Captured Stock...

Italian wwII if i'm not mistaken .....
Tom is right, that's a WWII italian messkit. But the italian messkit was left unpainted (bare aluminium) when the italian soldier was issued with it. This green paint indicate that this italian messkit was reissued to the german army...so not german but used by the german army....hope it helps...
