    Well, looks like the insert is missing, and can‘t see if the hooks for the belts are there.....

    of course the ladle is missing too, but that one is missing most pf the time....

    other than that it looks like a nice tan one

          IMHO very nice condition. No markings (waA, makerscode or yop) found. Enamelled interior is on the wish list...as is a ladle... ​​​​​​

          I got a pair of all leather straps dated 42 as well.

          Nice to see red primer here and there as well as on the interior, with roughly gelb sprayed over it.
          Must be a late (44 onwards) production.

          Regards

                          Very nice score Jan ! Still looking for a nice tan example ( i do have a field grey early one )

                          i got a spare ladle but not sure if i want to part with it.......

                          i think it would be best to buy an ugly one cheap which has the enamelled interior

                          And i would go for the webbing / leather straps , but of course the all leather ones would be fine also

                            Hallo Tom

                            Thank you for the comments.

                            Concerning the straps, all webbing examples I've seen the last months for sale were or non matching, to much used or even too mint foe my taste. The all leather straps I have are dated 42 and in matching patina with the container. They even match in time-frame with the final mannequin display.

                            Yes an enamelled interior and ladle is on the search list... Is your spare ladle enamelled

                            ​​​​​​There are still a few questions open concerning these containers and reference material is difficult to find.

                            One thing that comes to mind is the difference in height. I think that earlier models were a bit higher then the later versions. Another point to differ the earlier from late(r) versions is aluminum VS enamel for interior. But when was this production changed and quid transitional models?

                            As stated before, this example is IMHO a fairly late production :
                            no markings found
                            no bolts on the cover bars
                            mixed materials used
                            ​​(aluminum bolts on the cover for example)
                            factory einheitsfarbe
                            very tin metal for the body
                            cross on the underside
                            Enamelled interior
                            ​​​​​​....

                            I'll post some additional photographs soon with the straps and in daylight.

                            Best regards,
                            Jan B.

                              As far as I can establish no, but production could have continued few months after capitulation offcourse. Anyway, official produced post war pieces are, as you stated, quite different.

                              Now, I'm still searching for markings but the lack of markings isn't a red flag for me... Especially in this color.

                              Best regards,
                              Jan B.
