German WWI Medical Canteen-Extremely rare World War I Medics canteen. Field medics and medical personnel were issued a larger canteen. These larger medical canteens were of identical design to the standard  canteens but came with a different harness and shoulder strap setup.  This example has the steel body with a steel cup. The canteen body is covered in a brown corduroy. The brown leather body straps are in good condition, except for the bottom buckled strap which is broken. There is a brown canvas carrying strap, with steel fittings. The fittings on this example do have some corrosion and slight rusting.  This is in very sound condition considering it's over 100 years old.
