    Thanks for advice - well, the photos were so bad (too much flash), that they all turned out to be sand color
    I didn't get the can after all, there were rotting holes on the bottom (but quite happy with the two sand-painted ammo boxes for 40 bucks).
    Cheers,
    Fabe



    PS: I'll update over the ammo box thread later today with more (hopefully better) photos...

    I would be careful - just because it is painted white does not mean it was wartime done. Take this Kanister for example, it looks OK but in the close-up photos you can see there is remains of a green under the white - and it is NOT a wartime shade - more a forest green. This paint could have been done anytime over the last 50 years just because that was the paint available. Just an observation ...... I would tread carefully ( this one they want US$120 for )

    Ammo boxes are not German (MG) , they are Hungarian or Romanian for ZB machinegun.

    ... the JerryCan has original paint , I have one identical and it is normal to find orange paint .

    Standard canisters were orange/red , after ... army paint cans depending on need (camo paint)

    PS : I have attached 3 photos of my JerryCan (original paint) Click image for larger version.

    Thanks - you mean the 2 boxes in my recent post?

    They're indeed German MG boxes with both PATR. KAST. 41 F.M.G. (“Patronen Kasten 41 fur Maschinengewerh”.) markings on the sides and "bpd" (C.P. Goerz GmbH, Wien) and "brc" (Fr. Weber en Co. Berlin) on top...

    Cheers,

    Hi All,

    Picked this up today...

    I liked this from the moment I saw it - I think it's a 1942 (no. 276) "Fischer Original / ebn" jerrycan - only have seller's pics...
    Now I have 2 nice original painted cans - and promised myself to get only one more: a sand colored water can...one day!

    Price was 20 Euroes - Cheers, Fabe

    hey Guys,

    I'm afraid to ask...
    any thoughts on this Wasser Can?
    this time it's really white (the paint), not just too much camera flash...

    25 EU price tag -

    Cheers,
    Fabe

    THX for the input...I might go for it...there goes my "plan" to collect only one of these iconic WW2 items. ( if I get this, I'll have 3 - it's like drugs )

    THX! Fabe
