Default Metal box - is it German?

I picked this up in Norway years ago. I store ammo in it now. I always assumed it was a Norwegian repaint, probably German originally. The grey paint under the olive drab, and the style, look German. Any idea what this is, and what it contained originally? Note that the metal stamping LV21 is the same as the white stencil. So the box and its contents may have been used by the Norwegian army after the war. Or is the green paint and stencil German?

Looks like the case that held parts for the 2cm Flak Optics.
