M42 unmarked canteen with gabardine cover and bi-colour strap
Textbook late war construction canteen in good used condition. The steel red painted flask itself is unmarked. The cover is a typical late war gabardine (smooth cloth) cover with 3 press studs. The strap is a very interesting example in the late war two-piece construction using brown and black (bi-colour) leather and buckle without a roller which looks colorful and aesthetic. The strap is nicely marked FWBN 43 which indicates production by F.W. Brockelmann Aluminiumwerk GmbH KG, Neheim/Ruhr. In my opinion the canteen is an unmarked example from the maker FWBN as well! In textbook late war configuration with a black bakelite cup marked 7M/S.
