    Interesting thread the only German ww1 mess kit I had was marked Bing 1918 and enamled a od green I think Bing was suposed to be a German toy maker or I may have read that somewhere I have a friend that has a extensive German ww1 collection and he has some eariler ones as shown. I have a black one like the last or later ones posted and it is unmarked I was under the impression it was Reichwere It is aluminum. timothy

    My last two kits are just a Bing and a Silesia enameled version. Would like to find some more transitional patterns.

    Hello Timothy
    Bing made quality toys for decades with the tall ally messkits a rule of thumb for me if they are not marked to usually be post W1 maybe something to do with treaties etc at some point they also dropped the inside spork platform, anyway they are not as exciting to collect.
    Anyone else got kits to show come on gents lets see them!
