    I found this info on another site. Now I just find out what FA 6 matches up to...assuming this is correct info.

    FA is the early Code of Aluminiumwarenfabrik.
    FA 2 means Heinrich Ritter, Eßlingen Württemberg

    FA = manufacturer of canteen / cookware / drinking mug

    Manufacturer of this subdivision ( FA ), use this code until mid / end of 1934!

    The coding is structured as follows:

    FA ...
    6 = Manufacturers / Esslingen, Wagner GmbH
    34 = Year of manufacture

    Hi Hugo, thanks for the clarification and interesting information! Glad I decided to buy this canteen...I found a lot of info on 'M' RZM codes but not much when 'FA' was used.

    I really liked this canteen so decided to find another one, it wasn't so easy but possible. This one is in overall better condition with slightly different stampings on the cap...I like it
