I have no idea what this was for so guessed this would be the best section to find out.

It is very detailed though.

“We drank from the same canteen” was a popular Civil War Vet slogan. The GAR had all different size canteens available at reunions. It’s possible this was a WW 1 take on that theme as the Legion and the GAR overlapped and had reunions together. Or it is a charm for a sweetheart. Either way a cool piece. Thanks for posting. Mike
