I saw that( I get e-mail alerts from them). It looks like it actually has a new made canteen under the cover. I should contact him to see if I can just get the canteen body and use my cover, strap etc in place of my rusted out "for show only" canteen. Mine is covered with "Iron Blue" cloth, his appears to be Horizon Blue-proper for after 1915. He's also got a new made French cup and mess kit.
