Default The best canteen on the planet?

Hello everyone,

That must be the nicest one on the planet? Looks like early Luftwaffe to me.

Simply sexy Are the brown straps early or do they denote something else?

WOW, awesome condition. Other than the rubber seal being cracked, a person would almost think that it was manufactured yesterday. It must have been stored in the perfect environment for the past 79 years in order to maintain this level.
Congratulations and Regards

Definately one of the best I have seen.
Regarding the color of straps ; doens't look luftwaffe to me ( LW had chocolate brown leather in pre war period ). Looks more like Police or Gendermerie canteen ( typical color for police and gendermerie ).
Still looking for LARGE SIZE M43 gabardine jacket and m43 gabardine cap ... maybe some day I will find it best regards Marcin
