Yes. The cans made in 1941 are galvenized. Easy to spot them as the paint doesn't stick very well.

The 41 cans where galvAnized ( from L uigi Galvani,an Italian scientist)and were provided with a screw lid with only two ears.Also the securing chain was different from the later ones.No,P.Van Tine,they are not common!A water can ,with a W where the G of gas cans is,was made in 41,superseded in 42 by the cam lidded water can we all know.Scarce!
