Nice ww2 canteen dated 1941, if they cup is inside it is worth about 30 maybe 20 without it very nice canteen
A very nice 1941 dated canteen. All pre 1941 U.S. canteen cover that I own or encountered have a full connecting slit on the back side. By 1942, for easier manufacturing, they make the connection slit shorter. This example has only a short slit which locates on the top part back of the cover. However, I've seen a 1942 dated canteen cover with a full slit. It's a very common item, but I never get tired of them. What's the date on the canteen and the cup? I really like the cover. Thank you for posting.
