The one on the left is a GI-issue water bottle in some sort of ersatz cover...if it's been like that (read left untouched) from the War it could be a very intreresting "liberated" US canteen issued to some second-line or even freshly formed first line units....or to the Volksturm!The second is a German canteen!
How interesting, never seen something like it
I'd like to see the date on the US canteen, but if you cant show it with out damaging, don't try
Where would the date be on the bottel ?
Sow I know where to look for it
For US canteens, the date is usually marked on the bottom.........

That's odd. I would be interested in seeing better pics of that U.S. canteen.
Looking for WWII U.S. dog tags
I have an us canteen with the date on the front.
Lol - That must have been hilarious......... !
