what year and maker?
the markings on lid are under the paint - but thankfully the seller didn't touch th paint...
so the winter camo looks ok? to me looks original (I have a couple of white camo items), when I look the wear, etc.
just to update, I bought the can (38 EU), 'will update when arrives...
never saw a white ammo box, I have a grey post war painted by a civil.
In the 70's, theree was in the Falaise pocket one garage with ONLY such boxes, the walls made in wooden ammo box, one year, I came, all was away.
THX - I have a couple of SdKfz 251 wheels with white camo:
and a jerry can:
and shovel (Hungarian, but probably could have been used by anyone):
All of them recovered here in Hungary - where all the fighting (Siege of Budapest, etc.) took place in winter time with heavy snow.
I just asked the seller (who sold his collection - all items really under-priced - for he needs quick cash for moving to another country) where he got the can, he bought it in a flea market here in Hungary 8 years ago...
just to say..........veryyy nice
im buy 2 mg34 ammo box and military bag and something more for 12,50eur im pride themselves
Very nice i'd love a white camo one !!

Thought shall be the harder , heart the keener,
Courage the greater as our strength faileth.
Here lies our leader ,in the dust of his greatness.
Who leaves him now , be damned forever.
We who are old now shall not leave this Battle,
But lie at his feet , in the dust with our leader

The can arrived - took some quick telephone shots in the kitchen (sorry)
'Seems, the can was painted (hand-brushed) with a white oil-based paint, so by now - the paint turned a bit light-yellowish-tan. I've placed my other two steel cans behind the 'white-camo' can, for compare. Those have 1943 factory gelb/yellow paint on them. The camo can also used to be gelb - see a the third close-up pic, with the white on top of the gelb paint...
yellow like Afrika Korps ???
