    Unhappy M31 mess kit? Real or post war

    This is the m31 I posted with my first post. I have looked at all the info on the forum and I think itís post war. What is confusing me is the where the handle is attached to the kettle part. Itís marked HRE on the handle of the pan and where the handle of the kettle is riveted. Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks

    inclined that it is an original but post-war bowler

    Thanks Skorpion. Should there be a date on either part?

    usually to the stamp of the manufacturer must necessarily be a date, without a date, it is either tourist or post-war or a replica. Your bowler is 100% original and can be tourist. Strange, but at the bottom of the pot there are measured marks, this fact refers to an early type. Need to wait for other opinions. I tend to think that this is a (BGS) 50s bowler.

    Looks original to me. Heinrich Ritter Esslingen company ceased production in 1952 so if it is tourist it was short lived. I don't think it is a repro, could be endkampf 1945 made or post war but a nice collectable in its own right.
