Hello all,

I was wondering if anyone has seen or if there is any such thing as a US made 1944 dated canteen cover? The only ones I’ve encountered were British Made for the US. I’m trying to complete a set of covers from 41-45 but I need one dated 44. Can anyone help? Thank you!

Kevin

They exist, however aren't very common. Search the forum, and there are quite a few threads about them, listing several makers.

 

One that sold recently on eBay....they definitely command a premium.

Wow! That’s out of my budget limit. Maybe I’ll luck up on one at a reasonable price

The standard M1910 covers dated 1944 are out there. I think AIRTRESS MIDLAND is the only manufacturer that I have seen.

Nice example time. I also like the 50s cover to the right!

Thanks for the great responses, I’ve just never run across one myself other than “British made”

Hello

 

Collette and Gates have also produced covers in 1944.

Support our troops...abandoning the War on Terror is not an affordable luxury.

I'm so old, I still call W.W.II U.S. militaria "war surplus".

Here's an OD #7 Cover made at Jeffersonville in 1943, more scarce than even the '44s.

The '43-'44 Covers are out there, but theydon't come easily.
