Not German, It looks like a French C-38 gas mask
Found this picture.
But the cannister is a late war unfolded bottom type.
Thanks for your replies, but how a french gasmask got into a german can is a mystery but the can must be desireable as i assume luftwaffe. Regards allan
The paint looks like the post war Dutch civil defence grey.
