    Nice original larger bottle referred to as GJ should be a maker mark and maybe a date on the outside of the neck like MN42 etc. Straps are the kind usually found mid to later war nice bottle I have a lot of canteens but the trick is to find a cup for it I would think with that one I'd go with a bakelite one. I have one like it I am working on need straps, cap and cup. So many of the darn things are incomplete when you find them yours is ok. Nice find timothy

    I agree with all my collector colleague Timothy says - it is a good 1ltr canteen ( as opposed to the smaller 0.7L ones ) These have the added felt reinforcing ring being 30% heavier ( if full of course ) I would only add that try to buy as complete a unit as you can because by the time you find and purchase the missing parts you could end up spending more ( both time AND dollars ) and they never quite match correctly ( which is so frustrating )

    A standard 1 liter canteen - not necessarily GJ. With a rough cover like this and worn leather I would expect a value under 100 US dollars - maybe 60 or so. NH

    Hello Dan,
    the regular type canteen is 80 cl, not 70.
    Thanks

    Thanks for clearing that up JP - there are a lot of publications I have seen that list them at 0.7L
