Shorty Jerry Can.

Post by D.R.H. » Thu Sep 27, 2018 4:13 pm

I just received this Jerry can from a seller on Ebay. I haven't seen one this size before. Very clean inside, the "X" on the sides are proportionate to its' height. Couldn't find any markings of date or manufacturer. Does anyone have any knowledge on this shorty? Thanks.

Thanks Steve for your input. I cleaned the old paint and rust from the bottom of the can today but could not find anything to identify it with.
