    So everything seems to be original?

    Well, to be honest, not the nicest one I've seen

    it a mix and match of different parts.... The cup doesn't fit very well, and the lid (with the small chain ?!?!) does not belong to this sort of canteen

    Not a great set, and the price has to be very very low to get someones attention

    All in all , not a desirable set, and I would pass

    Tom,

    What do you mean by mix match of different parts? and what canteen does the cap belong to?

  7. #6

    Default

    you can see the normal configuration for an early canteen here



    The cap / lid you show probably comes from a political canteen (HJ etc)
    the cup is a HRE, and the bottle is WAL, cover maker is not visible, but is defect, strap also unknown maker but the lid/cap is not on it like it should be (instead of fixed with a chain)

    Hope this helps a bit

    Ah yes! I see what you mean now. lol. They said the strap that held the canteen cap was cut. so perhaps they used a chain to fix it in a way?

    Default

    Yes, the chain on the cap is a repair. This has to be cheap to make it worthwhile - under 50 US. NH

    Hello,
    and the strap might be broken as seen on the photo below...
    Thanks
