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.
Currently working on several KZ related projects, including items for the USHMM, Groß-Rosen Museum and various private concerns and studies. Available as a guide to KZ sites, contact for details.

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.
