M1910 canteen cover identification help


Recommended Posts

Shown is a pretty nice cover I got. Marked US but no maker mark anywhere. The lift-the-dots look like WW1 ones but it has the large later hanger patch on the back. Color is between a OG3 and OG7.  Material has a much lighter weight feel to it....almost like linen material and has a sorta mixed fiber content look to it.  Gray wool inside that is coming off the flaps. 
Could this be Japanese?  Do these have collector interest whatever they are?

Made in Japan for the civilian market.

Thank you for the info. Was the US marking just to help them sell better?

Yeah...some are really cheap and you can tell, but some are pretty good repros.
