    Not too bad !

    The Japanese canteen is a commercial job sold at sporting goods stores
    for camping, etc. - easy to find a US model for the cover.
    I think the pistol belt is Vietnam era.

    I always thought that WWII types had 'U.S.' stencilled in black
    on the front, and were made with brass fittings.........

    i was checking out this discussion M1936 Pistol Belts - U.S. Militaria Forum & it seems they're not all brass fittings as for the stencil maybe worn/faded over time ?

    Belt is WW2 and Vietnam dated belts can have the US stencil, I have one. Take a very close look at the belt, right
