The exterior olive brown paint is approximately 80% intact. The canteen reflects one of the design modifications that was made to the Type 99 canteen as a war conservation measure, having a rubber stopper. The rubber stopper is pliable but stuck in the spout. This canteen, has a leather strap with dual metal buckles to retain the stopper in the spout. This aspect of the canteen design was later modified and the buckled leather strap was replaced with a fabric strap. The canteen has the full canvas carrying harness and shoulder strap, with a faint issue stamp on the shoulder strap.
