German WWII M42 Canteen by SMM 43-Red steel body, nicely marked with SMM 43 near the throat, indicating manufacture by the Süddeutsche Metallwarenfabrik, Mussbach. Brown gaberdine felt covering that is in excellent condition, with no moth tracking or holes. Three press studs on the side, with most of the finish missing from use. Straps are a pebbled leatherette, and are intact and in good condition. A steel drinking cup that is finished in army green, and also marked with SMM 43. The green finish on this cup is 100% intact, and in super condition. A steel snap clip at the top, near the cup retains approx. 75% of its gray finish. Overall, a very choice and desirable example!
