  • Unissued pre war canteen strap

    55.00

    A rare spare part for all M31 canteens. I have found a small(!) batch of unissued canteen straps in undamaged and supple condition. The straps never made it to the canteen factory as witnessed by the absence of a screwcap. These straps were often made by separate manufacturers then the canteen producer who made the metal parts of the canteen. The strap is supple an perfect to complete a canteen with a broken or missing strap; a hard to find spare because it’s a pre(!) war example with all aluminum hardware. I am sure that this is a great opportunity to acquire a example for your canteen, or a spare for a future purchase; you will be hard pressed to find another!

    I have 8 matching unissued examples. The price is for 1, and you will receive a unissued example in the condition pictured!

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

    950.00

    Incredibly rare original orange bakelite canteen cup. This is a rare opportunity to buy original orange bakelite canteen cup. This example was certainly MPD code marked just like the other examples but the markings are completely faded because of the time in the ground. 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 surface is affected by the time in the ground and thereby lost some of its smooth surface. The cup only has some minor discolorations which could probably be cleaned some more. 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 today that I am aware of. Rarer then most Knights Crosses.

  • M31 canteen Hungarian POW art

    200.00

    Interesting early M31 canteen which has been turned into an art piece. Sadly the cup and flask aren’t matching but they seem to be together for a long time! Interesting is the HRE 1935(!) marked flask which indicates production by Heinrich Ritter, Esslingen in 1935. The aluminium flask itself is simply changed into a colorful art piece! The design is very interesting and colorful. The art piece is dated 7-2-1946 and marked “Emlék Salzburgból” which is Hungarian and would translate to “Memorial from Salzburg”. Most likely done by a Hungarian POW (prisoner of war).

  • 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!
