    Default Authentic German WW2 Canteen or perhaps not ?

    Good evening chaps

    I have found the canteen in the pictures below at a local auction. I really don't know much at all about the German canteens but this one in particular seems "off" to me perhaps due to the good condition of the item. The questions are whether it is in fact a real canteen from WW2 Germany, whether any other countires used the canteens/design after WW2 and whether $30 is to expensive ?

    Is this something worth getting ? Looking forward as always to your input.

    Yours

    the bottle looks fine but i'm not sure about the metal cup, i thought they had a fitting on one side to thread the leather strap though.
    It's a wasted trip baby. Nobody said nothing about locking horns with no Tigers.

    The metal cup seems to be WWI or paramilitay, to put on the HJ breadbag ?

    Still a good deal for $30, in my opinion...

    Thanks chaps, much appreciated. Anyone have an idea about the marking W.A.L. 36 ? If my scale modelling days serve me well, I seem to recall that little black cup being used at the start of the war. Also, the patter on the "buttons" at the side of the water bottle bother me a bit as they seem a bit "civilian" to have been used on a piece of military kit ?

    Nice one, and indeed a good deal.

    That odd little design is typical for "Prym Snaps"...It's one of the first things I look for!

    Looks OK but the hook is defect. The clip is missing.

    Regards, Lars
