    Hey it was just a coincidence that I was fooling around with a L F & C bottle today! I have a carrier I was trying to find the mfg stamp and was mating it up with the bottle etc..
    Talk about coincidence.. I just happened to spy this in my wife's junk room..

    Hey everybody,

    I found this canteen and cover at an antique store today. Been doing research all afternoon and getting some conflicting results. Can anybody tell me what type of canteen this is? I am curious about the markings on the cap too...not sure if its WWII or WWI? The case it came in is marked 1943 not sure if it was originally paired with the canteen. Also, the custom engraving on the side is interesting.....Thanks in advance
    Judging by the lack of marking, your canteen is released until 1918 (after 1918 marking necessarily indicate).
    The "flat dome" canteen cap - releases from 1913 to 1914.

    Aluminium canteen caps, manufactured Rock - Island military Arsenal:
    1) Early cap, produced until 1913.
    2) "Flat dome" of pressed aluminum, produced in the period from 1913 to 1914.
    3) "Dome cap", standardized in 1914.

    There are also differences in the ring that the chain attaches to, that might give a clue.

    Yes, on this photo is also clearly visible. "Ring" in the photo number 3 appeared in 1914.

    PS I forgot to write about the canteen cover - covers of this type (with a side seam), manufactured since 1941. You have a good cover of the Second World War.

    Now you'll just need any pre-1945 dated cup to complete a nice WW2-era set.
