Does anyone have any answer?
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
