Default Patronenkasten differences

Hi, I have been given two patronenkasten with no markings, one of grey and one of black (?) color. Are those WWI kasten?

From left:
two new boxes, yugo box, two PK 41 (both marked brc)


Other views:



The yugo box seems to be closest to the black box. None of those two have any markings. As you can see, those two PK 41s on right are little bit shorter.

Grey box is wwII. Black one is similar to my (first from right). And this is thread about Yugo postwar box wit faked German markings:

I have found the same box as the grey one on Internet named Patronenkaste 15 or 15/34 (http://wehrmachts.kisten.free.fr/patronenkast41_2.htm), also here in this photo of equipment for MG 08:


The yugo one is not faked, I have painted it intentionally into dunkelgelb as I use it for reenactment.

I see only 2 ORIGINAL painted cans in this lot. Origially painted are first and the second from left when you look at monitor.

the rest is painted postwar but all of them are wartime examples.

Those three I painted by myself (reenactment purposes - had almost no original color and were rusty). The box in the middle is yugo, it came with my M53 gun, yugo green and yugo marked.

Still wondering about those two on left. If they are WWII, shouldnt they be marked accordingly?
