Hi, I think that it's WWII. USMC water bladder carrier and it's interesting because it's not stamped. I have one in my collection too. Tom

Only the Marine ones had the shoulder strap so this isn't an Army one. I have one too. I wouldn't say they're common, but they don't seem to be very rare either.
