This is a super nice all original German medics canteen with its original pigskin shoulder strap (which is always missing). The only condition issues that I have found are a hairline crack in the cup which I didn't even notice at first and the base of the canteen is slightly dented from the buckle. Other than those two things, this canteen is as nice as you could ever hope for. The leather is soft and flexible, some of the holes in the leather still have the little leather plugs stuck in them from when the holes were punched! It is very well marked with both The WAL maker stamps and an Rb.Nr. which seems odd but I confirmed with a few canteen collectors that 43 WAL made canteens can have this as it was a transitional period for markings.
