    Attic-find Medic Gasmaskcanister

    Hello

    This can came within a mainly medical related konvolut, found on attic in Vienna (Austria).

    I'm very sceptical on these, but I feel this could be OK.

    All the other items - medical instruments, feldpost, docs,... - are pre-45 dated and untouched (uncleaned and non-denazified)...But I guess we'll never know for sure when RC was added.

    Still searching for wartime pictures of this alternation in use.

    Nothing in comparison with the last one posted by Patrick, but still worth sharing I guess...

    Regards

    Jan

        Hello Jan,

        How can it be the whole cannister is rusted and with few to none original
        green paint left, and it has a neat red cross applied?

        I'm not indicating the red cross is postwar applied but I'm only saying what
        I'm seeing here...

          Depends of the quality of the color. For example you could find dug-out helmets with zero paint, but still with decals.

            Hello Patrick,

            That's correct.

            Jan, can you please take a look at the picture I've added
            and tell me if the red paint is applied directly on the rusty
            surface or not?

            Could you perhaps post some better close-ups from the
            red cross?

              Floris,

              I can assure you that the RC is far from 'neat'...A lot of wear is present. Concerning your worries, I hereby send you a close-up taken with flash.
              Please judge yourself. IMHO there's still feldgrau below the red and white paint.

              Again, I don't see anything wrong. The RC 'protected' in a way the few traces of feldgrau paint left.

              If needed I'll take some additional pictures in natural light the next days.

              Regards

                Hello Jan,

                Pictures are so important if you want opinions on an item like this.

                On the first pictures it looked like it didn't have any Feldgrau paint
                at all and that worried me.

                But now you have posted this new picture I can see it does have
                feldgrau paint which ofcourse completely changes my first opinion.

                Some pictures taken in daylight would indeed be very helpfull.

                At this moment I give it a good chance.

                Regards,

                        If you dont want more original paint, or you like the rust better, dont clean it!

                          I really like it, in my opinion was done pre 1945.
                          I would say this is a nice addition to your medical collection
