U.S WW2 Marine Corps Field Canteen 1944 ‘S.M CO’
Out of stock
Here we offer an original U.S Marine Corps Military Field Canteen with the original cup and canvas cover from WW2 produced by the S.M Co (Southern Metals Company). The US Marine Corps in WW2 introduced many innovative field gear designs that were different from the standard Army issue. One of the most distinctive pieces of ‘Leatherneck’ equipment was the “bunny ears” cross flap canteen cover, specially designed for amphibious assaults.
The canteen is made of Stainless steel and has a screw-on black plastic cap attached with a chain to the canteen. The bottom is marked U.S.SM Co 1944. The canvas cover has two cross flap pull snaps and hooks in the back.
Nice and seldom seen Marine Corps canteen!
