Help with US canteen covers

Article about: Hello, I have these two covers. Two questions. I believe the khaki covered one is a M1910 pattern cover, but is it authentic? It look good to me but I know there are repros about. The second

    Your "Iraqi" canteen looks like a copy; the cap is a little odd and so is the attachment of the chain to the canteen body. The second, unmarked canteen maybe good; I can't tell for sure but possibly post WW2. The chain is unusual and so is the collar it's attached to. The khaki cover is good and a very nice example. The third cover, the green one, is a M1956 cover, used in Nam until they were eventually replaced by a nylon cover in the mid 60's. It should have two Alice clips on the back, but has been modified with homemade wire attachments.

    Thanks very much, really good answers and I am grateful for the responses.

    It is indeed possible to fit the cap into the khaki cover, but its very tight. The 1910 water bottle is unmarked, i've examined it very carefully with a lens in good light.

    Not much to add except take the 44/45 dated cup-canteen and use the OD3 cover at least that way you have a complete wartime set
