Anybody have an idea where this canteen came from?  It has a serial number on the front of it and is marked "1B NY" on the bottom.  Thanks!

Its a pre-ww1 spun canteen. The early ones are unmarked. It has the earlier cap too. Very nice and tough to find

Here is mine.  Found in a box of camping items at a garage sale during a trip to Michigan this summer.  Stamped on the flat top:  2K 25.

 

Enjoy, Al

It is a second type M1910 canteen with the improved neck and ring.  Dates around 1913 t0 1914.

1BNY I have seen referred to as first battalion New York.

I have to dig a bit more, but I have several items similarly marked.  I believe it is the 1st Battalion. New York Naval Militia.  WWI era.

Though this canteen set and some other photos I will post are from a a friend's collection, They are good examples of how this unit marked it's equipment.  Again, I'm pretty sure this is equipment for the NY Naval Militia, but have not found a direct evidence.  This first set is an RIA 1915 marked canteen set with all matching numbers.
