  • M31 canteen marked OHW 40

    180.00

    Textbook M31 canteen in combination with a brownish phenolic resin (Bakelite) cup which started production in 1940! This example seems to be unissued and only shows some traces of storage and has been found as is! The flask itself is nicely marked OHW 40 which indicates production by Otto Honsel Werdohl in 1940. The cup is nicely marked with the 3 letter code gfc which indicates production by Julius Posselt, Gablonz an der Neisse, Reichsgau Sudetenland. The cup is MPD marked with the material S which indicates the usage of Phenolic resin (bakelite) with sawdust as the filler material.

  • Tropical M42 canteen

    Excellent “tropical” M31 canteen with interesting very light coloured webbing straps. The red painted steel flask itself seems to be unmarkedThe cup is MPD coded F7/K which indicates production by a still unknown maker and the usage of urea resin (which is a certain type of Bakelite) with an organic filler material. Stunning M31 canteen in pretty good condition with interesting straps!

  • Rare M42 (Steel) 1L Labeflasche marked MN44

    275.00

    Very rare M42 (Steel) 1L Labeflasche which has only been produced in small numbers and all by the same manufacturer, all the other manufacturers kept producing the Labeflasche out of aluminium. The canteen is marked MN 43/44 which indicates production by Menesa Metallindustrie GmbH. Neunkirchen-Saar. The flask itself is marked 44 and the cups 43, this seems to be normal for the 1944 1L steel produced canteens, all untouched pieces I have come across had this “mis-match”. The canteen is used and has some traces of usage but luckily no major damaging. Great and very rare steel 1L canteen in good used condition. Only the second I have ever been able to offer!

    75.00

    Heavily used mid war production M31 canteen. The aluminium flask and the cover are marked HWSD 42 which indicates production by H.W.Schmidt, Metallwarenfabrik, Döbeln in 1942The brownish cup is nicely marked with the 3 letter code gfc which indicates production by Julius Posselt, Gablonz an der Neisse, Reichsgau Sudetenland. The cup is MPD marked with the material S which indicates the usage of Phenolic resin (bakelite) with sawdust as the filler material. Sadly the cup is heavily damaged and repaired as can be seen on the pictures!

  • Rare(!) orange bakelite canteen cup F7/K

    850.00
    Incredibly rare original orange bakelite canteen cup. This is a rare opportunity to buy an original orange bakelite canteen cup. This example is beautifully marked with a MPD code which was typical for period produced bakelite items. The MPD code F7/K indicates production by a still unknown maker and the usage of urea resin (which is a certain type of Bakelite) with an organic filler material. The bakelite is still in a very good and rather smooth condition and the material isn’t heavily affected by all the years in the ground except for some black discoloration which in my opinion could be further cleaned. The only damages are some tiny cracks at the top of the cup. Beautiful original and very rare example!
    This cup was found in Berlin recently together with 12 complete and 5 damaged cups. They were dug up underneath remnants of a concrete floor together with other canteen cups and butterdishes. In 15 years of collecting I’ve only found one example for my personal collection: this is only the second time I’ve been able to acquire one. I have kept 3 cups for my personal collection, other then these there are no other orange cups on the market that I am aware of. Rarer then most Knights Crosses: this is probably the rarest item I have had for sale in the 5 years that fjm44.com has been online!
  • Canteen filling funnel

    165.00

    A unusual, late war canteen filling funnel. These funnels where used in field kitchens and together with the 5, 10, and 18 liter aluminium “Trinkwasser” drinking water containers to fill canteens. These funnels had the capacity of exactly one standard 0.8 liter canteen. They are wide enough at the top for a 5, 10 or 18 liter drinking water  container to easily poor. It is used by holding a finger underneath the small hole underneath the funnel and then filled to the top. The funnel is then placed above a canteen and the finger is removed. The canteen will be filled quick and without spillage! The funnel is made out of enameled steel like many of the late war canteens. A nice unusual item!
