1941 gas can question

Post by Robin » Mon Oct 06, 2003 7:23 pm

I picked up a WHEELING 1941 gas can yesterday. It appears to have never been painted, as it has "HQ" stenciled on the bottom in white paint with no sign of ever being painted OD. Usually when I find 1941 cans, the first indicator of being an early can is the flaky OD paint that doesn't adhere to galvanized cans too well. My question is, were 1941 cans originally issued unpainted?
