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!

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.

That Jeff. Q.M.D. example from ebay sold at a high price because they are the oversized ones with the hidden compartment in the bottom for E&E materials. Not your run-of-the-mill canteen cover.

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

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.
