US WWII Canteen with Cup
The USGI WWII Canteen with Cup was one of the most widely used canteens during the World War II era. Officially designated as the M-1942 Canteen and replacing the M-1910 the biggest change was the use of corrosion resistant steel. Previously the M-1910 was made from aluminum which at the start of the war was in short supply due to aluminum being needed for aircraft construction. With this reproduction M-1942 canteen with cup you can recreate the look and feel of a World War II era US soldier at an affordable price.
The interest and demand for quality reproduction clothing and equipment from the World War II era continues to rise. With the supply of original USGI WWII equipment fixed at the number produced during the war, prices and rarity of items has made originals more suited for collections and display than use. Recognizing this demand early on was Mil-Tec of Germany who should be credited with producing some of the very first reproduction items.
One of the most in demand reproduction items are field gear like this M-1942 canteen system. Consisting of a new production one quart canteen with the correct style cup, this reproduction canteen recreates the look and feel of the original M-1942 canteen. Just like the original M-1942 the canteen cup nests with the canteen with the folding handle of the cup used to lock the cup to the canteen. This canteen system can be used during living history events to show an accurate version of what the standard US Army canteen was without having to risk damage to your collectible original M-1942.
