Just picked this up at the local goodwill.  Looks like an early, pre-WW1 canteen and cover.  

 

There are no markings on the cover that I can see.  It has the pea green color of the pre-war equipment. Four line stitches in front, small x and rectangle for the back strap. 

 

The canteen doesnt have the typical manufacturers markings like WW1 canteens, the only markings are engraved on the bottom  187-15.   And some other crude markings that look like JACKSON / MICHIGAN

 

Anyone able to ID if this is in fact USGI and what specific type of cover?  

 

Thanks in advance!

The cover appears to be either Dutch or French, not US. The canteen with that style of cap and neck ring is before 1918 but after 1915.

Canteen looks to be a 1917 US model.(no date)  The neck has no ring but just a pin holding the chain.  The boss for the pin is part of the neck.

The material of the cover is much heavier than the Japanese made covers I've handled.

If it was pre WW1 it would have eagle snaps.

Is that really a rule set in stone?  Here's a 1916 marked RIA with lift snaps.

Your cover is not USGI. Accept it.

It's a discussion. No need for an attitude.
