    It's a donation tin of some kind. Presumably the label would have signified exactly what the donations went towards.

    It is a donation can. (Winterhilfswerk )

    Looks to be repainted (post war????)

    Not like the typical style I'm familiar with (no handle, etc.) But I don't study these so not sure of all the variations out there
    "Please", Thank You" and proper manners appreciated

    My greatest fear is that one day I will die and my wife will sell my guns for what I told her I paid for them

    Yes, now I see it. Still not a style I've seen. I'm only familiar with the examples with the handle that goes over the top, like on a bucket. That said, I don't know all the types.

    Just some info about Whw:

    The Winterhilfswerk (Winter Help Work) program came into existence after Adolf Hitler became Chancellor of Germany in 1933. After coming to power in Germany in 1933, Adolf Hitler had always addressed the German people each year when he opened the Winter Help Campaign. This was an annual drive by the Nazi Germany Government welfare organization - Nationalsozialistische Volkswohlfahrt (the National Socialist People’s Welfare Organization) to help finance charitable work. The Winterhilfswerk's slogan was "None shall starve nor freeze". The scheme embraces house-to-house collections, the sale of a variety of badges that were advertised on radio and newspapers, a one dish Sunday monthly, street collections and deductions from payroll checks before they are handed out. It was instituted in September 1933 and designed to provide food, fuel, clothing and various household items to indigent Germans at first, and to war refugees and other civilian casualties during World War II. In many ways, it was similar to the US Food Stamp Program.
