I am reviving this up after Mark reminded me of it.Steve,all the cans I have seen have no dates,and only some had other inscriptions stamped in.But no U.S.A..no date,ever,only a J,a 4 or a 5 depending the kind of gallon they were refering to,and a letter for the contents.The ones I have seen with the original paint on,had a yellowish tan colour.Absolutely the same as the "no marking whatsoever "ones.SteveG wrote:I also have several pictures of USMC IH M-2-4's on Iwo and they seem to have two piece German style cans on them. I'm doing a Rocket truck that had four of these on it in the pics and hoped to find some of those with good dates on them. The only ones I've come across so far are 50's dated.
I've also seen several photos in the ETO of Allied fuel dumps with those two pieces cans as far as the eye can see. Why don't any turn up with WWII dates on them? SteveG
