The simple 'X' pressing alone, is simply the earlier design.

 

The rigidity of the cans was improved by the now 'Standard' 'X'. with a square in the centre.

And is copied to this day, on pretty much all 'Jerry Can' patterns.

 

I have a book on German Jerry cans, It cover's the entire range. & all the manufacturers.

As well as related accessories, it describes their History & usage in Service Etc.

A very good book, but it was quite expensive! But Hey! GOOD books normally are!....:-D

 

I read a long while back, that someone was writing a book. That was to be titled: Jerry Cans,

& Americans'.

Does anyone know if it actually did get published at all?

I would very much like to obtain a copy, if possible? ;)

 

Mike.
