M31 / M42 Canteen marked ESB 42 / SMM 44 with webbing straps
Nice mismatched M31 / M42 canteen in overall very good condition. The flask itself, the cup and the cover are all from different manufacturers. The flask itself is a aluminium M31 marked ESB 42 which indicates Eduard Sommerfeld, Berlin in 1942, the cup is a steel M42 marked SMM 44 which indicates production by Süddeutsche Metallwarenfabrik, Mussbach in 1944, the cover is marked MN 42. The set comes with webbing straps and the complete set looks really nice together, it is unclear when the set was put together like it is now. One female pressstud is missing! Nice mismatched example which would be perfect for a mannequin!
