Nothing new, I suppose.
I wonder if Robin posted his welcome pictures because they are nice and clear pictures, showing once more how those cans
were used by the USMC in the Pacific theater, or if he also meant to suggest that they are made in U.S.A.
He is the only one who can
answer, and I hope he will.Why mistery cans are called that way?
To me, they are called mistery cans
because there is not safe knowledge on where they were manufactured.
Some other guys might have different reasons to call them mystery cans
Of course, if they knew who
made them, they would also know where
they were made.
So, one might legitimately ask, what is the undeniable
evidence. regardless of the manufacturer, for those cans
being actually made in U.S.A..Undeniable
evidence, not conjectures.
Here is one opinion, not even one year old:
EDITED: Sorry, guys, the links do not work. The list was posted by Roy / Gerrykan, and I came on it while searching for Mistery cans, trying to check whether any new information might have popped up during my absence from the forums
