WWII German Early Political Type Canteen- This type never had a cup. The olive brown wool cover has minor discoloration, wear, and a small hole under the strap. One of the button heads is missing. The leather strap is in fine condition and complete with an aluminum maker marked and dated (1935) snap clip. The cover is maker marked "HRE" followed by the date 36. The canteen itself is naturally finished aluminum. Near excellent and scarce!
