C011461 U.S. M42 CANTEEN & COVER.

A one quart capacity canteen with its cup and Khaki canvas cover. The stainless steel canteen is slightly concave to its reverse and retains its black bakelite screw cap, attached between its top and a flange brazed to the base of the neck by a short metal chain. A raised, horizontal ridge demarcates its sloping shoulders from its straight-sided base, and "S.M. Co" and "1945" may be seen stamped to the bottom of the canteen. Its Khaki canvas cover has felt padding to its interior and two extended flaps to its open top, each of which have a lift-the -dot snap which mates with a corresponding stud to the upper body of the cover. The snaps and studs are of blackened brass, and exhibit noticeable verdigris. The top flaps have light olive drab web trim. A "U.S." ink stamp is noticeable on the front. The vertical webbed canvas loop sewn to the reverse has a horizontal brass belt hook fed through it with moderate verdigris. The cover is quite faded and shows light/moderate usage soiling. The steel canteen itself is more lightly surface scratched.
