I bought some WWII items, two of these items I cannot identify from which era they are actually from.
How can you tell the difference from a WWII canteen cover and belt from Vietnam, Korean war, if there is any. The canteen that is in the canteen cover is marked U.S. A.G.M> CO. 1942. This does not make the cover 1942. The cover seems to have a marking on the side which is not readable anymore, I see no further markings on the cover. The medical pouch on the belt is marked Interdependent. ? 1943 that is attached to the belt, but this too does not make the belt 1943, a slight U.S. is still visible on the belt. In the pouch is what I believe to be a can opener I don't know which era this opener is from.
I would like to ask for help. I'm relative new to WWII items.
