Hello

 

I went across this can but looking for additional informations :

 

- First question : was this kind of opening litf and close handle system in use during ww2 ? or only the flat screw one ?

 

- Second question : What is the "B" Manufacturer ?

 

- Third question : it's uncommun that this "B" manufctaurer began the production of this can in May 1945 then Russakov end the job in assembling it so late in July 1950 ?

 

Thanks for your help

For the cap, got the answer here :

" (...) Not all US style cans with the cam-lock cap were original USMC production. After the war, when thousands of US jerry cans came on the surplus market, many were modified with a German/English type spout for use in delivering heating oil. This commercial modification was made so they would be more leakproof than the US-style screw on lids (...) "

 

But still looking for who is the "B" manufacturer ?
