    Hello,
    nice items congrats....as usual the messkit is mismatched, only the lid is from 1944, the messkit itself is rather pre or early war...
    The italian is also great, well engraved....but considering that it's painted, IMO it's not a captured canteen, but rather an italian canteen reissued to the german army, which was a common thing after september 1943
    Thanks
    There's a new Spiess in the youtube garrison, so 150 push-ups in a row, 15 stadium laps and no leave for the next month for all those who don't type " d3rNooB Spi3ss " in the YT search bar......Verstanden ?

    Hello,
    Considering the paint on the body of the messkit, it's wartime (and not prewar as mentioned before), but MN44 and MN45 messkits do have the simplified steel bale to hold the wire handle and not the big aluminium one seen on your messkit. This said, some manufacturers still used the aluminium bale well after the other manufacturers replaced it with the steel one. If your messkit has the three ration marks for soup on the front, it's an early type, if not, it's a late war example from another manufacturer than MN.
    Thanks
