    Default Complete 1943 and 1945 U.S. Canteen Sets

    Hi guys!

    I picked these up recently. There are two canteen sets here, one with a 1943 canteen, 1943 cup, undated carrier, and pistol belt. The other has a 1945 canteen, a 1945 cup, and a late/postwar carrier with a late/postwar pistol belt. The 1945 cup is named to 'Knox'. Every piece has a tag on it from the previous owner with the date of purchase, price paid, and source! I have never seen that before, and thought it was cool.

    Just a couple of neat sets! These will be going up for sale.

    That is interesting. Good eye! I would just attribute that to manufacturer variety.
