This original WWII U.S. canteen with cover and strap is in superb condition! The canvas cover is marked with the U.S. stamping on the front and the name of a manufacturer LUSTRE along with the date of 1943 on the rear. Included with this rig is an original to the piece strap which was mounted to the canteen's web belt clip.
The aluminum canteen itself is in excellent condition and the cap and chain is intact, including the cork seal. On the obverse of the canteen itself are some hand written markings on the body of the canteen that appear to be the initials "M e" or "N/e", nothing that appears exciting, however, it adds an element of interest to a very nice original example.
