M42 enameled messkit AEMA 44 / RB-Nr 0/0657/0001
A very nice latewar messkit or Kochgeschirr made by Annweiler Email-u.Metall-Werke in late 1944. The marking RBNR. 0/0657/0001 was a latewar substitute for AEM.A. which is usually stamped on items from this maker. Interestingly both markings are used! AEMA 44 as wel as the RB-Nr. This messkit is finished with enamel and after that painted over before it left the factory. The messkit retains 90% of its original enamel finish. A truly uncommon and interesting latewar messkit!
