    UPDATE: I just won this can for 103 Euroes (137 USD) - I hope it was a good deal!

    I think I'll write to Thomas again regarding original straps...

    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    I guess I am...this will be my second can. I'll see it in person in about a week from now...
    I already have extra original spring and spare lenses - I'll just need to get cloth/straps...and of course I'll look for a nice gasmask.

    Hi Tom! Please don't give me a heart-attack!
    The seller had a few other WW2 German items...mostly relic state, this can was the best shaped item he had...I would be surprised if this turns out to be a fake.
    I'll take pics when it arrives...

    Just kidding

    It looks pretty original to me..... so I would be surprised as well....

    Vut then again, sand / cammo painted items are a minefield.... and if you need some straps you know where ro find me

    hey guys,

    I usually collect field-gear which are in good condition, no rust, etc...with this can, there is some rust.
    my question; is there any way to "clean" this a little, without hurting the paint? what do you recommend?
    or is this "do not touch this, rust is good" category?
    of course don't mean to clean it with a steel-brush...

    THX,
    Fabe

    I'd honestly leave it alone as it's only surface rust, if kept in a dry place it wont get any worse!...
