    Thumbs up

    Yep got the straps with my 18L. Bought it at Beltring about 10 yrs ago.
    Here is the back and an SS can I got in Germany several yrs ago. The guy had a shed full in various conditions, said he bought them from a Czech small town fire dept.
    Was also going to post a photo of the 10, 18 u. a 20L wtr cans but can't get the photo to attach, so here are the other 2 photos.
    I've got another SS can that I got at Veterama in Manheim (IF I remember right). It is well used and has been painted green. I've never gotten around to taking any photos of it.

    Hi Sarge

    Very nice 18 L with the straps... hard to find

    I am sorry to say that the SS Sandrik Kannister you show here is one of the famous copies !!
    I bet it has the "flower" stamp

    You can see that is is a copy because of the fact that the handle is not completely welded ! (you can see the hole above the "a" from Kraftstoff)

    Look inside the cap at the neck area of any questionable SS Kanister - it will also probably appear similar to the example shown below in the attachment, which is a reproduction.

    Hi Guys/Gals and Happy 2015!

    My first show/question of the new year...

    I like this jerry can - 1944 date, maker can't be seen from these pics - so I think I'll bid on this baby - but what's up with that paint job? Looks like the "yellow/gelb" paint was "puked" on the "panzer gray" Camo maybe?

    Any thoughts?

    Nice can.

    The first coat of paint is the Dunklegelb (tan yellow) the grey / green is a camo overpaint.

    By 1944 when this can was made "Panzer Grey" was no longer used. All new equipment was painted Dunklegelb.

    Cheers, Ade.
