    The one you show unfortunately is a copy, sorry
    IF that is the case then the guy in Germany I got it, and 2 others, from had a garage full of them. There must have been 100 in that building. They ranged from nearly new like mine - I picked out 3 nice ones - to pretty rusty altho most including the rusty one were new inside.
    He said that they had come from a rural fire department in Czechloslovakia.
    I got them in the 1990s.
    Exactly what is it that tells you they are not original? I have one that is identical to this one that I picked up at a Veterama in Manheim around the same time. It had been painted green and appearently used for a water can has it has rust holes in the bottom.

    Well , with copies the welding on the handle is different, there is probably a flower like symbol on the cap and there are more details....

    Just google on Sandrik and you will find a lot of discussions with detail pictures of the sandrik copies (in fact they are note copies, but they are produced by Sandrik, only post war !)
