Early Anodized 5L Trinkwasser Can


Very nice early anodized trinkwasser can. These very first cans produced were anodized for extreme durability but this process was expensive and in high demand for rocket parts, so they dropped the anodized finish quickly in favor of paint. The lid is marked D.R.P.ang. the period equivalent of patent pending.

This one needs a gasket, but is a great example. The latch is complete with the wire lock and is pretty clean overall. There are some small dents and scuffs. It smells pretty clean. I believe it was only ever used for water or maybe milk. The inside is dirty, but should clean up very well. Do NOT paint this can! This is 100% correct as is. The yellow/green anodizing is funny looking and hard to get used to, but this is a great example of what it is.
