It might be more accurately described as a medical 1 liter canteen but it was used widely in many theatres and not exclusively by Gebirgsjaeger. The leather strap is very rough and it is missing the shoulder strap. However, I would say the canteen, cloth cover and cup are certainly worth 50 Euro. For the equivalent of $65 US I would pick this up. The cup alone might be worth $30 or more. See photo for a complete example. NH
Im very interested in it, i asked him is it all matching, now waiting confirmation.
all looks good.
He says he took it all apart, no stamps or any markings. I think ill go for it, its not 50 its 40e, and he will bring the price down
Matching or not - BUY IT! You would spend that much on the cup alone. Most likely there is a date and manufacturer mark on the neck of the canteen. NH
The situation developed pretty nice. Got it for 32e + free shipping. Cheers to all, ill post pics when it arrives. Also the seller wil send it to me first, after i check everything is fine then i need to pay. We need more people like this.
40 bucks! The cup is worth about that alone. Terrific buy. NH
That is a good one worth the price even if missing straps. timothy
