Default Box whithe

Hello, I shall like your opinion on this box metal. A thick white grey color recovers the green.
She is for you ww2. This box takes out of a villager (Elsenborn;: Belgium) battle of tea bulge. Thank you

Actualy looks to me like typical, late war TAN ( factory ) overpaint. Nothing to do with winter camo.

The box would be painted post war? Or on the front?

Marcin, I do not understand what you're meaning: so you think it received this light grey paint over the standard green, late in the war ? A re-use so ? Also, on my labtop, it's not tan...but really light grey. Do you think this color would actually be a "kind" of ordonance tan ? Thank you for your enlightenments

IMO very faded tan color . yes a factory reissue ( seen such carrying boxes ). Ofcourse could field overpaint/overspray.

Thank you, here I am to reassure. I thought of credit note to buy a box(cash register) repainted after war....
150 euro it is not unimportant. I am going to keep(guard) this box(cash register). Thank you

Hello, actually this kind(genre) of paint(painting) exists on other boxes(cash registers). Seen on eBay: one 3 tones covered with this greyish paint(painting).

IMO this is postwar grey paint.
Interrior looks more rusted than outside - that is a proof the paint outside was made after the war, not so late - maybe 30 years ago

agree,

see the hinges on the picture of the interior. they differ per section.
makes that the container was painted when closed and assembled.
this is not done in the factory.
