    Default German Canteen?

    Hi, this was a flea market find last weekend. At first I thought it was a regular Swedish one and it didn't have the exactly same details as the German ones, but when I saw a German Canteen with similar buttons for the cover I thought that I should post it here. But probably it's Swedish?

    Thanks Al

    I can tell something about it, although para-military items is noy my collecting area.....

    The clip was made by Schmöle & Co, Menden/Sauerland (SC with a tree) and was a maker mark used during ww2

    The import stamp : I have no clue, but not normal german mark.....

    The buttons: typically german field bottle buckles...

    Looks like an (ordinary) para military canteen to me.... but it it in near mint condition, and that makes you wonder if it maybe is post war

    Sorry I can't come up wth more info

    Thanks for your input really appreciating. How long did Germany use these type of buttons? Maybe the import stamp could stand for a Swedish reuse?

    What could it be worth do you think as per the really good condition? I'm quite supprised it was German since I didn't expect that.

    Thanks again/ Regards Al
