    Hello Everyone!

    I'm brand new to this forum - actually somewhat new with WW2 items collecting as well (Hungarian & German items), only been collecting in the last 6 months, after I discovered some WW2 photos of my grandparents (Hungarian soilders on the Russian front).
    For now, I'm reading all the threads, very informative stuff on all subjects...I do hope to become a valued member, sooner or later

    I do have one question, maybe someone can help me here.

    I purchased a German M31 canteen recently, which is really in a nice shape. Felt cover, alloy canteen/lid and straps are all 1938, the black cup is 1937.
    However, there is a slight flaw...Of the 4 pushbuttons on the felt cover, the bottom one is missing (just the top part of it).
    Does anyone have an idea, how to replace it? Is there a place on the internet, where they sell these push buttons - originals or repro?
    The cover is in nice shape, no holes, etc. - would hate to replace the whole thing with some repro cover

    Thanks in advance for any help!

    I'm posting a couple of photos (sorry, not very good quality) - on the last one, the missing button can be seen.
