    Thanks Ade, I couldn't tell the color of the darker paint...if it's "camo", even better.

    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?



    Cheers,
    Fabe

    the seller is not a military dealer per say...but I was expecting a biding war - I think here in Eastern-Europe, with the crap money we make - people just don't have a lot of money to spend. frankly, I don't either...I'm "lucky" that I don't have a family yet.
    ...and also "knowledge" = money! if the seller knew what he had (even I wasn't sure, hence I asked here first) - and he added just a word to his description: "camo" - maybe things would've been different for him...

    Ok, here some photos...I've cleaned it and tested it for water leaks (no holes)

    The can's date & maker: '1944 Nirona'
    Factory lot code: '14'

    The paint is interesting...it's a mix of apple green or panzer grau(?) and yellow/gelb hand painted with a brush.

    It was found north of lake Balaton, where Operation Spring Awakening - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia has taken place...

    Cheers,
    Fabe

    PS: I still would like to get a nice German "X-type" can and a DAK wasser can...
    Funny, I was reading my earlier posts here from almost 2 years ago, that "I don't want to collect jerry cans, I don't have the space..." - and look at me now...
