US M1910 Canteen

Recommended Posts

The 1909 Infantry Equipment Board introduced a completely new set of field equipment. The board had 300 sheet tinned steel canteens and cups manufactured by Rock Island Arsenal, and 500 aluminum canteens and cups manufactured by The Aluminum Goods Manufacturing Company (A.G.M. Co.), sent out for trial in 1909. A.G.M held a patent for
the process of manufacturing one-piece (seamless) aluminum products. In 1910 the board decided to adopt the aluminum canteen and the first production canteens were made by
A.G.M. Co. in sets with the cups. The Canteen was all aluminum, with a chain to hold the lid made of German Silver. The Canteen lid is a flat top design, which would differ from later models. These canteens unlike later models are all undated.
