"MC" Marked Water/Food Can -- Whatzit?

Post by AZ Jeff » Sat Nov 01, 2003 10:06 pm

Howdy Folks,

Picked up two cans at the swap meet (aka "Flea Market") the other night. One was a Wheeling '43 Gan Can, "G" + "QMC", no problem.

The other is a food/water can with the flat cap. Above the embossed "X" there's a RAISED "US". Below the "X", a RAISED "MC"...

No markings on the bottom or under the handles. Nada.

So I'm guessing that this is a post-WWII USMC water/food can??? Am I right here? Looks just as old and crusty as the Wheeling but I know that doesn't mean much...

Your opinions are appreciated.
