US - MC cans

Post by khakiweb » Mon Jul 19, 2021 2:02 pm

Recently came across a couple of jerry cans with "US" up where the 'G' normally is, and "MC" down where the 'US' or 'QMC' normally is/are. No other markings of any type anywhere on the cans; nothing on top or bottom. Who made these (US Metal Can Co?), and when? GI or not? No sign of any paint other than red. Worth picking up?

Thanks for any info!!

There was some speculation in the past that these may have been made for the US Medical Corps, but no conclusive evidence that I remember.
