    Looks like a British (or US?) ammo metal box - with German paper stickers (8.8 cm flak) and a DAK logo - I guess trying to look like a "German booty" box.

    So is this a post war box?

    "C238 MK2 SV57A" markings on top

    I don't mind if post-war, really I only need it for storage...and this one looks quite good.

    Cheers,
    Fabe

    Question

    Well, lets see what others say, But I think it is post war that someone has decorated with fake labels and Afrika palm tree.
    The markings on the lid do not look like German.

    I sharpened one of the photos - you can actually make out a 1965 date under the paper tag...
    It's a shame that someone painted the DAK logo on it...

    Buy it if you are happy with it, as long as it is a cheap price because these are quite common army surplus.
