    Nice patina on that one Fabe!
    Good to see the 20 kg stencil still present.

    Cheers, Dan

    I just love these old canisters!!! I've found one in an old barn in Crete along with two british ones and I was donated another german one from a friend! Sadly the donated one is all painted dark green. I just love them!!!

    just a small update - the can arrived today - along with 2 relics straight from "Stalingrad" ( Volgograd ) - they are "ring protectors" for shipping crates of large shells:

    hi guys - just a question:

    could this blue-gray paint be original on this can, did anyone has or seen cans with this paint color? It's a '1944 Nirona' lot num: 20 (?) - I do have a '1944 Nirona' lot number: 14 already...

    cheers,
    Fabe

    It has been repainted Fabe.
    Look at the dent to the left side of the Nirona logo - it has paint on it.

    THX Dan - I was around 90% sure that was a bad paint - no red primer anywhere - etc., but since the seller was insisting that it is original paint, I had to ask.

    Hi All,

    i'll be a bit "OFF", but since this one is a super-rare can (and looks like an early German "X" type), I'll show it here...
    It's a Hungarian made WW2 can - the maker is "Fülek" - just like my other Hungarian can, see this thread:

    WW2 Hungarian gasoline "Jerry" can - FINALLY!

    As you can see, they are slightly different - this one has "HONV 20 L" marking (HONV is short for "Honvédség" - means "ARMY" is Hungarian) and seems, that these cans have no lot numbers. I belive, these are "later type", made during the war.

    Also, an interesting bit...this one should be painted "yellowish-green" like all other Hungarian metal gear in WW2 (again, see my other thread), but maybe it was made for / used by the Wehrmacht - the paint looks like it's "panzer-grau" - and def. looks original...

    Also a sure sign of WW2 made Hungarian item is the "Royal Crown" marking - the seller (or someone) had to make sure it had it, so it was scratched off (which I really hate). I'm sure, that my other green can has it also, but the paint is quite thick on these. (and I won't be scratching off any original paint)

    Cheers,
    Fabe

    I was in the US awhile ago and a friend who is a collector/dealer has 2 small Jerry cans, I wish I had photos, I would think they hold 2 gallons,
    Any idea what they might be for?

    Look at my post #106 - I think this is what he has Dean.
