 I bought a second USGI surplus canteen cup today. The one I use right now has the butterfly handles and this second one is one of the old school cups with the L shaped handle. I've heard several comments over the past few years, that some folks like the old style better, so I'm gonna give one a try. I'm actually kind of excited.

 I haven't hurt myself, but John and Denise (she's as nice as she can be) have gotten a couple of bucks off of me every now and then. He sells plastic waterproof vials that will hold a bill, I usually carry a twenty, folded 4 ways wrapped around the inside of the vial with 4 or 5 Lucky's in the middle. That way I can always pick up a little something if I need to and I've got a couple of extra smokes. I was just over there looking and talked myself out of his pack grill.

Go to www.armynavysales.com or US ebay and type in WWII L shaped handle canteen cup.

Edited to add that mine is stamped US MECO ,but realize that there were numerous manufacturers of military equip. My point is that a genuine surplus GI canteen cup is going to be stamped by some US manufacturer. There are repops. which I had absolutely no interest in.

My canteen and cup are stainless steel. My canteen lid is detachable. For that matter so is the cork on my old British porcelain canteen. Grin

 I use a lid from Pathfinder, fits good enough and I like it.

I've got on with the butterfly handles, a heavy cover, and a canteen shop stove. All in all it's a bit heavy but bullet proof. I use it more in the winter, good setup.
