    Very nice! These were only made during 1942. This one appears to be made by F.E.Co - Fletcher Enameling Co.

    I'm sure I read once that they were discontinued after complaints in the field regarding this very thing happening on the inside as well.

    They are uncommon but not rare, they also used blue enamel and I think I have one those lying around somewhere. All enameled canteens (should) have the early plastic flat top cap I believe.

    The enameled cup though is VERY rare and fetches a high price whenever one comes up for sale.

    Very nice canteen, I'm sure these cost more to produce than your regular stamped canteen as well. Even rarer yet is the enamel messkit which demands serious money.
