These are WW1 to WW2 military containers.  The circled U letter is a military marking, I will try and track down specifically BUT falls into USA, British, Dutch ( really have never seen the same marker used by Germans or French).  Appear to be screw neck containers.  Possibly chemical containers.  Most likely early or pre WW2 USA or British, non magnetic or static conductive as well.

wow! that is so informative Zobex, yes it is screw neck type but we are unable to locate cover when we found it.

anyway, in your honest opinion, how much does it cost?

Thank you
