Here is a VINTAGE galvanized Steel, unused firefighters orange canvas Canteen. The package that is stapled to the strap has a white enameled aluminum cap with a chain and a button to adherre it to the canteen ( so you don't lose it ). It is a 4 quart; Made by Oasis as shown in Pic #2. It has a canvas front and back piece, which was meant to be wetted down to keep the water cooler. The bad side of this wonderful piece is that someone wrote over, in a very nice design I must say, the stamping that said U.S. Government. This piece is 9 1/2" dia; and by looking inside, I am 99.9 % sure, it was never used. The inside is clean and rust free and the cap is still in the envelope stapled to the strap.

I spoke to an owner from Oasis Canteen and this model was manufactured between 1945 to 1960......so I am estimating this in the 1950's, due to the plastic spout. Per Oasis, it was used by the forest service for firefighters, which explains Pic #5 ( a totally different one; not mine ) stating U.S. GOVERNMENT. You can see that this canteen did in fact, have that stamp, underneath, the writing or scribble to cover it up. Still a great piece of history!!

A must have for any Firefighter or collector!! or hiker!! It's really cool.........has a nice long canvas strap also.

Shipping will be USPS Large Flat Rate box with insurance included
