    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

    ...and here are all my jerry cans (so far)

    first the German ones:
    Kanisters of the Wehrmacht

    '1944 Nirona / 14':
    Kanisters of the Wehrmacht

    '1943 Austria Wien / 1003':
    Kanisters of the Wehrmacht

    '1942 Fischer Original - ebn / 276':
    Kanisters of the Wehrmacht

    '1944 skv / 643' (I belive this is an original red primer paint, and was never painted with any other colors, see this post:
    Kanisters of the Wehrmacht ):
    Kanisters of the Wehrmacht


    ...and now the rest - British/Hungarian ones...
    Kanisters of the Wehrmacht

    '1942 VM' (German "booty" from Africa or Southern Europe - it was found in Hungary, where no British troops fought. There are two different yellow/sand paint present, some spots of the brighter 1943 gelb but the majority of the paint is the darker, mustard DAK sand):
    Kanisters of the Wehrmacht

    '193?-194? Fülek / 25' (rare Hungarian WW2 jerry - based on the early German "X-type", with original Hungarian field-green paint, the maker is - "Fülek", lot number 25 - probably made between 1938-1942):
    Kanisters of the Wehrmacht

    '1944 BMB' (another German "booty" from Berlin - the letter "H" /Heer?/ stencil-painted on the top, and "Petroleum" on the side):
    Kanisters of the Wehrmacht

    ...and some detail shots:

    the 'W' and 'Petroleum' text on the '1944 BMB':
    Kanisters of the WehrmachtKanisters of the Wehrmacht

    close-up shot of the '1942 VM' - 2 different shades of gelb:
    Kanisters of the Wehrmacht


    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...
