    I have a similar canteen. If not marked on top of the lid, markings could be on the throat of the canteen; you'd have to carefully loosen the leather from the buckle and pull the felt cover down.

    Often referred to as a Political Canteen, these can be seen being carried by various organizations such as SA, HJ, DJ, Pre-1933 Youth Organizations etc...
    These could also be Privately Purchased...

    For reference, here is an early 1934. @GOG I've seen the brown felt covers for sale, some real and some repros.
