    Original early war HRE4 40 aluminum Essenträger. It is in decent condition. The body is solid and still has a lot of original green paint. There is also a lot of caked on stuff on the sides. It was used for something other than food after the war. The inside is fairly clean but had a funky chemical odor when I bought it. I would recommend scrubbing the inside with a wire brush until absolutely every surface was shiny aluminum and then clean it and maybe use a food grade sealer to line it. The lid is a little chewed up, probably from someone opening it when it was stuck.  There is a small hole in the lid also but if you replace the gasket, I don't think the hole would leak.
