The 41 water can used a 4 ear straight tab cap and the 41 gas can used a 2 ear straight tab cap. Both used non rubber gaskets ( the kind you don't lick or try to smell - think brake linings ). I have both styles available for $22.50 each including the shipping in the Us if anyone is needing any .

I added a nice '43 CHATTANOOGA can to my growing collection over the weekend for just $7! Someone had used it to hold oil, so the inside is in remarkably good condition.

I was able to add another can to the collection this weekend. $7 got me this '41 dated Nesco screw top water can. Usually the paint doesn't stick to these galvanized cans too well, but that's not the case here. Heavy white stripe around the can to ID it as Water, but someone has used it to hold fuel at some point. Also has the incorrect cap.
Some additional yellow stenciling on the base.

$10 yesterday got me this '45 dated NESCO fuel can. Still has some gasoline in it, so it's leak free! :D
