Model 1910 Canteen (1918 Set) (Cover: Rock Island Arsenal/ Canteen &
Cup: AGM Co. 1918)
Here is an excellent set all marked 1918. The cover is a R.I.A. 1918
Pattern and you can still see the inspector's mark on the left interior
ear. There is a small hole in the cover that you can see in picture No.
3 that is right on the seam. There is also a very small spot on the
cover about 1.5" up from the "S." These are unnoticeable but mentioned
for exactness. The inside is flawless and still lined with felt with no
holes, cuts, or tears. Both snaps still work and have the full finish in
place. The canteen itself is minty. The welded seams are great and the
canteen still has the original frosting on it with wear where the snaps
touch. It is marked, " US / AGM Co 1918." The welded neck ring, chain,
and top pin all still have their original finish. The cup is in
excellent shape and is also marked, "US / AGM Co / 1918." It appears to
have the original wash with some corrosion where the folding handle has
been sitting on it which is typical of this style. There are no dents or
dings to the canteen or cup. These are becoming increasingly hard to
find in this condition. This perfect all matching set would look great
in your military collection.
