The Type 17 can was used in Czechoslovakia and Germany. It has a domed lid, a solder spot on the bottom, and a recessed area on the bottom where the key is attached. The lid is reusable.

I’ve noted three different sizes in this style of can. The height can be one of these three: 8″ or 8 1/16″ or 8 1/4″

The width is either 2 13/16″ or 2 15/16″
