I have a question - have you guys ever encountered a coconut flask dated 1944? I've seen 41, 42, 43 or 45, but not a single from 44...

matello, coconut flask dated 1944 who when did not see.
Such cases are not known.
There are only canvas belts, metal accessories and marks of 1944.

Why is it so?
Germans stopped production of flasks on 43 and started it again on 45?
, whereas straps were manufactured constantly from 41 onwards?

Such type of belts, did only for coconut flasks.
These belts, are with markings till 1944.
Belts with markings of 1945 on a metal buckle, I didn't meet when.
Only markings of 1945 on a leather belt which puts on round a flask neck.

Same thing here I have only seen flasks dated 41-43 though there are harness's dated 44 and they usually are two toned canvas.

I went through my canteens today and have a list of parts they I will be needing to complete some of them. I also have a list of canteen cups I have that don't match any of my canteens. Would anyone mind if I list the cups here for other canteen collectors to see and contact me about to complete theirs?

I think that in 1943 german produced as much flasks to continue production in 44 without making new
