Must be a post-WWII jerry can I guess....but a rare one!
Just remove the SS runes, etc and start stamping them out.

FACT: NOT POST WAR they were war time. Served at eastern for Slovakian troops made by SANDRIK Czech
SLOVAKS bought 150 Panzer 38(T) and 35(T) mostly with the SS

I THINK I posted this info the last time you wrote that.

interesting that the SS would let "their" source of jerry cans sell some of the production to the Slovaks. I guess given the location of the factory that SANDRIK was permitted to make an outside run of cans. Do you happen to have a timeline for when this occurred Adam?

Some time early 44’ recommend Philippe Leger and Stéphane Arquille. “ Wehrmacht Kanister 20 Litre” books best ever!!
