Original Japanese WWII Aluminum Canteen in Canvas Carrier with Model B Wood Stopper

Item Description

Original Item: This is a nice totally original USGI bring back Japanese WWII aluminum canteen with original "Model B" wood stopper. This type of stopper replaced the earlier metal and cork version, and was made of a soft wood plug with a hardwood top. These are rarer to see, especially in nice intact condition with all the harness.

The canteen is arsenal and maker marked on the bottom under the strap, though there is no date that we can see. These were usually made in during the 1941-1942 period. The web harness is in good condition, with the expected fading and wear from being in long service. The leather strap that retains the canteen and stopper is somewhat worn and shrunken, but is still attached to the buckles on the harness, with no breaks through the leather.

Overall a wonderful wartime issue canteen offered complete with stopper. Ready to add to your collection!
