    Default Sani gasmask canister - original or ????????

    Some of you may have seen this on Ebay in the UK. I have bought from this particular seller and all his stuff has been Okay so far.
    This has now been pulled because of "a listing error" but it may have been done if was considered suspect? At first inspection it seems a great sani canister but I am suspect of the condition of the red cross as the colours seem too bright ....... how about you guys?

    I got to admit I dont like the look of this one either Dan. There doesnt seem to be any ageing to the white as in any yellowing or crazing of the paint. Also there seems to be chips of paint down to metal on the lid that look fresh and with no rust, where as the body has rust and bear metal chips as well. To many red flags for me.

    I agree Jason, I had cooled on it pretty quickly but I admit at first glance I was salivating a bit
    I'm glad it got pulled so no-one got disappointed..... one has to be always wary ( even from good sellers - they get caught too )
    Cheers, Dan

    Well we can all agree on that the canister is surely original! hehe. The paint looks a little off to me as well.. For something that is 70 years old it should have a little more age to it. Hmm..
