    The three letter code "ets" is the maker: but I cannot tell you who this was. Other members might be able to help.

    1941 is not the production date, but is the pattern date of the box. Patronenkasten 41

    The paint is very nice! It would indicate a post 1943 production date.

    Cheers, Ade.

    Does that color mean it was used by Afrika Korps?

    Hi Adi, after 1943 all German ordnance items were painted a dark tan yellow. (Dunklegelb in German)

    This is not a DAK issue tin just because of the colour.

    I would expect to find a DAK tin to be overpainted yellow over the factory finished feldgrau paint. These tins did not come from the factory painted yellow for tropical use.

    Cheers, Ade
