Original U.S. WWII Canteen and Cup in 2nd Pattern USMC Canvas Carrier

Item Description

Original Item: Only One Available. This is a very nice U.S. WWII Canteen and Cup set, complete with an early war issue U.S. Marine Corps 2nd Pattern Canvas Carrier.  This carrier was essentially the same as the 1st Pattern, except the regular press snaps were replaced by Lift-the-Dot fasteners. This change was made shortly before the introduction of the 3rd pattern cover with the "dog eared" flaps. These covers were unique to the Marines and lacked markings and felt lining of the Army type.

The included canteen is a 1945 dated seamed Stainless Steel example by VOLLRATH, and the aluminum canteen cup is also dated 1945 on the galvanized steel handle, with a K.M. CO. maker mark. Both are in very good condition, and the canteen has the correct black plastic cap with an intact cork washer and chain.

This is a really good chance to pick up a nice canteen in an early issue USMC carrier. Ready to display!
