Just thought I'd put my two cents worth in. According to my wife, who is a kraut, both ways are correct. The printing on the original is the old way of doing it and means that the items inside will or can be used when needed. Also the word "Jnhalt" is the old way of printing that was used prior and during the war. Hope this helps. (Her mother agrees.).
