    Default 1918 US Canteen with Cover

    I picked up this 1918 dated canteen the other day, got it for just $10 The cover is nicely stamped and dated 1917. The canteen is engraved with the words "Leosa" and "Hurndon" with some sort of arrow also carved into the side. I assumed it was a name when I first saw the writing but now I'm doubting that. Anyone know what those words could mean?

    Could it be read as Leo's A. > Hurndon?

    I have a 1918 made by TJWBM Co. It is covered in graffiti named to Zajac Stanislaw of Krakow 1947.

    These canteens were used for decades by anyone who could get their hands on one.
