    Today I found this very old canteen flask in an old barn in France. The farmer gave it to me, and told me it was very, very old (as if I couldn't see that from the state it's in!), maybe even 19th century. The bottle and its cover have a faded blue color, so it might aswell be from the horizon blue army period, but i can't find a match anywhere on the net. It looks a bit like the wwI Americain ones, but its not as round. Even some Belgian wwI canteen bottles look a bit lik ehtis one, but than again no perfect match.
    its in poor condition due to the moth damage, and missing its stopper. Not worth much to many colectors, but I like the original look of it.
    Anybody have anything on the item? Age, which army?
    Thanks for any input!

    As mentioned a lot of the US guys are preoccupied with the hurricane on the US east coast.
    I can't help but it DOES look mid 19th century to me. I can see this slung over one shoulder and a black powder horn slung over the other!
    Nice relic friend - thanks for showing it!
