Original German WWII Aluminum M31 Canteen with Large Aluminum Cup and Belt Strap - dated 1940
Original Item: Only One Available. This is a nice genuine German WWII Issue M31 aluminum canteen water bottle with with aluminum screw top cap, complete with genuine wool cover featuring correct snaps. It also has a standard black leather belt harness, which has an steel belt hook on the back, for attaching to the combat rigging. Unfortunately the leather of the harness has degraded quite a bit, and is very delicate. The portion with the hook that connects the cup retainer strap to the rigging has already broken off, and the front has a repair.
Both the canteen body and the canteen screw cap are marked C.F.L. 40. The cup is marked A W 40 near the handle.The companies that made the Aluminum components for canteens often did not use three letter codes, so these are actually abbreviations of the makers name, and the date. We were unfortunately unable to identify the maker, however this is a known maker mark.
The original sealing washer in the cap is still present, and the felt cover is good, with a few areas of moth damage, and overall dirt staining from service.
An original German WWII Canteen with Cup, worn from use in the field. Ready to display!
