I have a little extra time today so I thought I would share my most recent acquisition. To my knowledge these do not come up for sale often so when I saw it I had to add it to my collection. The "filtering system" appears to be made out of wood, perhaps rosewood? The spout cap threads are worn so it no longer screws into place but it is an impressive piece nonetheless. I don't know a lot about what to look for that identifies a canteen to a certain depot/manufacturer and there does not appear to be any markings on the spout or sling. Any insight and opinions are welcome and appreciated.
