The jerry can trace its foundations to Germany, where it was invented, mass-produced, and stockpiled since the beginning of 1937 for the battle of Europe during WWII. This sturdy and trusted tool has been deployed nearly everywhere worldwide and has been the most relied upon liquid storage solution for nearly 8 decades. If you invest a little time and planning, you can clean them up with a wire brush and add fresh coat of spray paint, you have essentially a brand new tailored can at a fraction of the price. 5 Gallon (20 Liter) capacity. Measures 18” high x 13”  x 6” Pairs well with any NATO style small mouth spout or maybe a U.S. G.I. 1 Quart Flexible Funnel. Used, good condition. May show signs of weather and storage marks on exterior bust still perfectly functional. Genuine European Military Surplus.

The picture shows a V on the can will a Valpro be shipped if I order several & spouts . Thickness of steel varies from manufacturer's 8 to 10 lbs makes a difference under hard use.

Probably not, I ordered 2 and one was Bellino and one was Valpro. Both had a bunch of hazardous label stickers on them. Most were easy to remove, one was made of paper and was kind of a PITA. Good shape cans, clean up well (not like new though) both mine have sun fading from sitting in a rack or something and the top 1/3rd is lighter than the bottom 2/3. Not an issue at all, just noting it. The insides were in great shape both had a swish of diesel left in them and rinsed out easy.

What were these used for, type of material on inside?

Based on smell alone, and some labeling, these appear to have been used to store diesel. They also appear to have been rinsed out. Letting them air out with the top open for a few days in the sun allowed the water droplets to evaporate, with gasoline added later.
