Z2018 Pre-WW1 Model 1878 Infantry Canteen as Manufactured by Rock Island Arsenal in 1906
Description: Here is a great Model 1878 pattern canteen with the leather strap. This one has clear markings and a date of 1906 on the front. I don't believe this strap is original to this piece but it's correct for the M1878 version. However, this particular canteen has the indented back which started after 1900.
