Nice. Had few of those ( and still have one ). Hard to say if it say late war ersatz or some sort of extra purpose can ( for some sort of lard). IMO late war ersatz.

All I had , have had no maker markings. Al were made in the same way. Butter or lard is most posible ( or some sort of jam/marmolade etc ). If remmber well Jim Pool show one of those in his book ( used by Jager or Gbj troops ).

Well, all I had were found with II WW gear ( typical late war gear ) in Germany (know that of some were found in attics/basments in Warsaw as well ).

A friend has a group of a paratrooper, with it is his breadbag, canteen, and such a tin - all shot to pieces while fighting at crete. So no late war
