  • M42 canteen marked SMM43/44


    Excellent late war M42 canteen in very good condition. The flask itself is marked SMM 44, the cup is marked SMM 43, this seems to be a factory mismatch because a lot of untouched SMM canteens have this feature. SMM itself indicates production by Süddeutsche Metallwarenfabrik, Mussbach. Textbook M42 canteen with steel painted cup and green painted flask!

  • M31 canteen marked HRE42 with pebbled leather straps


    Excellent M31 canteen in very good condition. The canteen is marked HRE 41 / HRE 42 which indicates production by Heinrich Ritter, Esslingenthe difference in the dates is IMHO a factory mismatch made in early 1942 with left overs from late 1941. The cup features initials on the top which reads: R G, which could be the initials of a first and last name. The straps are made out of pebbled leather which is rather unusual for an early 1942 manufactured example. Very nice example!

  • Unissued pre war M31 canteen marked AEM.A 37


    Unissued pre war manufactured M31 canteen in very nice condition. The canteen is unissued but the bottom strap at the stud has been broken at one side which should be handled with care! The canteen is nicely marked AEMA 37 which indicates production by Annweiler Email-u.Metall-Werke in 1937, early examples from this manufacturer are rather rare. Lovely unissued example with a small damage which is luckily not disturbing in a display!

  • M31 canteen Hungarian POW art


    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).

  • Textbook M42 canteen CFL43/44


    A very nice matching M42 canteen with a black strap in good supple condition.  Nicely marked CFL 43/44 indicating production by Carl Feldhaus Aluminium-und Metallwerke, Lüdenscheid, the year difference is most likely a factory mismatch because the canteen is in unmeshed with condition! Excellent M42 canteen in the textbook configuration with a steel cup!

The cup reads: Belgian (Belgium), Holland (The Netherlands), Polen (Poland), Serbien (Serbia), Russland (Russia), Frankreich (france) 1939-1948. Very interesting example with beautiful Vet art!

    Excellent late war enamelled M42 canteen in configuration with a bakelite cup and brown leather straps.

The brown leather closing strap is a bit fragile but still functional. Excellent late war variation canteen!

  • M42 canteen cup marked L&SL 43


    Textbook M42 canteen cup in good used condition marked L&SL 43. Hard to find as a spare!

  • Unissued pre war canteen strap


    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


    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.
