    I think thats what they go for here in Norway too. I was lucky and got mine off farmers in the area and found one of them in a barn I searched once

    For further study, see this thread:

    You've acquired a genuine piece, well done. It is an AMBI-BUDD (Berlin Presswerk) example. Sadly, it has been painted over - the Wasserkanister was always marked with a large white "+" symbol - as can be seen on examples shown in the link. A white "w" was often painted underneath the handle section too.

    This is very true, I see them regularly. Testament to how well they were manufactured.
