    is it war time tin mokka-kola or postwar

    Comment


      [QUOTE=duv;7799598 Dextropur box

      I think it's prewar. Dextropur was introduced in 1929 and still being made. The Hamburg factory was built in 1905. The W in Landsberg-W is for Warthe. One website dates a similar box to the 1930s. Jim

        I never have been able to pin down the dates the Sprengel Mokka Kola was made. Best I can do is before 1960. However there are lots of places that sell these as war time. Now Sprengel did manufacture Mokka Kugeln or Mokka Bon Bons for the Wehrmacht, I just don't know if they are one in the same. Jim

              Several cartons with the same wording were found in Germany about 20 years ago. I managed to get one then. I think my carton looks a bit different though. For one thing mine is very white. Since it wouldn't take much to fake these, any differences send up a red flag for me. Jim

              PS I went and looked at mine. Completely different construction which makes me a bit suspicious.

                Hi, Jim

                Thank you for your help. Have had another box from another maker and the closed flaps are not the same.

                    Honey jars?

                    Hello all,

                    today I got these jars with bakelit lids.
                    What do you think? Postwar or pre 1939 jars?

                    They are similar to my original ones: http://www.wehrmacht-awards.com/foru...&postcount=635

                      Obviously they are difficult to date with certainty. The caps themselves look similar to the wartime butter dishes. Some appear to be marked. If they are that might help date them. Jim

                        Hi Gents,

                        Have been looking through this thread today, all highly interesting!
                        However, I wonder if any forum member could direct me to information or a book which details the rations (and paperwork involved) of German civilians during WW2?
                        This seems to be a neglected subject, I have purchased several ration cards on German flea markets and elsewhere for clothing (lots of categories seem to exist- men, women,babies under one year old, children - girls and boys in different age groups) and cards for meat, eggs, marmalade/sugar, bread, sewing needles, potatoes, canned vegetables, petrol, machine oils, metals etc.
                        Have 30+ of these with no real information on the system involved, wonder if someone could assist?

                        best wishes,

                        John.

                          Hi John,

                          As far as I know there is no contemporary book that discusses the Wartime Civilian Ration system. However after the war the allies evaluated the system and published their findings in a Sept 1945 publication. I am currently working on another book and the ration cards will be discussed in one of the annexes. The allies were impressed with how it was managed and continued to use the same program during the occupation. Jim

                            I had questions on the normalkonserve jars that maybe someone knows the answer to.

                            Were jars also produced post-1945?

                            If so, is there any way to tell wartime jars from post-1945?

                            Regards, Ben

                              That’s a nice jar. I've never seen one with a lid. I really don't know or thought these might have been produced after the war. Almost all examples have been battlefield finds and don't command much money ( as low as $10). Since they aren't dated it would be difficult to determine a postwar (if made ), from wartime example. Folks who specialize in glass ware might be able to narrow down the time frame when certain glass products were manufacturered. Jim

                                Jim...Thanks for the feedback. I purchased this one & another just like it from a vendor in Germany, but it wasn’t dug in this particular case. That had me wondering about if there were any post-war production of these. Maybe there are some glass experts who know something more.

                                Best Regards, Ben
