Don't be fooled - now or ever. Inside, along the wall of the bottom half of the can, you can see my maker's mark: AOD...for Arcadia Ordnance Depot. (I mark all my repro cans in this manner). This can is circa either 2008 or 2013. I don't know the seller. I guess I should have been selling them for a lot more back in those days :blink:

I am asking because I don't know.... did the Army actually use quotation marks on "FRAG"? I don't ever recall seeing that. Then again, I wasn't looking for those details back then. Thanks.

I believe mine is real. It has some lettering impressed in the lid and "FRAG" printed on top. Not sure if it came with the yellow mkii it came in when I got it or not.


Looking for the following:

452nd and 447th Bomb Group items

Anything 12th Armored- especially uniforms

155th Assault Helicopter Company, Camp Coryell, or Ban Me Thuot Vietnam items[/center]


WWII US Navy Uniforms from the Battle Off Samar: USS Johnston DD-557, USS Hoel DD-553, USS Samuel B. Roberts DE-413, USS Heermann DD-532, USS Dennis DE-405, USS John C. Butler DE-339, USS Raymond DE-341, USS Fanshaw Bay St. Lo, White Plains, Kalinin Bay, Kitkun Bay and Gambier Bay...

I tried to add a pic of the canister in this auction but the format was too big so I took a pic or one of Robs cans and an original..in his first auction with a buy it now of $39..you couldn't see the AOD mark..what I noticed is the repo can has a tighter C in the word CANISTER M41..with the paint it almost looks like an O. Here is an original and a repo next to each other to try and show what im talking about.
