    I know that you can judge whether it is fake or not by the weight:

    You are correct. This is a fake plastic extruded cup. The blown sprue ring below the large Materialpr├╝fungsamt mark is the clincher.

    OK, thank you, now I can safely do the test according to the known rule - on concrete

    Tapping with your fingernail on the side of the cup is a test I have used. Plastic feels and sounds duller. NH

    Thank You NH.
    I see, but because of that, it would be nice to have a real, original one around to compare sounds and feelings

    Hello. If your cup looks like it does and has a weight of 40 grams you can be absolutely certain that it is a fake.
    Original ones, whatever the basic material and filler may be, are around 60 to 80 grams.

    Hello dear,
    Here is the view from above of an original canteen cup.
    There is (black cat already wrote it) no blowing ring to be seen..
