Captured Polish M.23/31 Messkit

This messkit was captured and refinished by the Germans during the war. The M.23/31 messkit was made from tin coated steel. It has been captured and at some point made its way in the German production lines being refinished in the way most of the steel post 1942 messkits where finished in red and olive paint. It is the only Polish messkit I’ve seen so far reissued and refinished in this way.
