This is an official Boy Scout water canteen, with emblems stamped into the metal of the canteen itself (Boy Scouts of America Be Prepared), as well as stamped on the canvas cover. The snaps of the cover also have the boy scout emblem on them.
Measures: 8" across
The body of the canteen is dented, although it still holds water. The metal body was made by and marked Regal.
Condition: the strap has worn through, however, this could easily be mended. The snaps on the canvas cover have rust evident.
From the estate of the boy scout who used this in the 1960s; however, you don't have to be a scout to enjoy the clever and efficient design of this essential piece of camping gear.
