Japanese Army Type 99 Army EM/NCO Canteen
This Type 99 Army EM/NCO canteen has the cork stopper that was introduced in late 1942 as a modification to the existing Type 99 canteen design. The cloth carrying harness is the earlier war style with the lower horizontal strap on the bottom of the harness. This example of the Army canteen shows wear typical with having been carried in the theater of operations. The exterior olive brown paint is approximately 90% intact. The cork stopper is present. The harness and carrying strap show use and wear and there is a faint issue stamp still visible on the strap. There is kanji written on the harness as a unit or name identification.
