Korean War Canteens

Finding an antique canteen from the Korean War era isn't easy. It is especially true if you are looking for a canteen offline. Even on the web, it is challenging to find the ones in mint condition.

One of the best ways to find a Korean War canteen is eBay. Below are the listings extracted directly from eBay. We've reorganized them into simple categories so you can find canteens easily. Use the listings below to find your treasure.

Price Suggestions

In June of 2008, there were only three completed auctions at eBay for Korean War canteens. All sold for between $15.50 to $24.99.

I don't know this for sure, but I've heard that you don't find many canteens designed for the Korean War only because the canteens used during WWII were used in the Korean War. So there's no real value to them unless there are stories attached to it. Like I said, I heard this from someone who studies history.

Vietnam War Canteens

Despite the fact that the Vietnam War was one of the longest wars in the recent history, it is hard to find antique canteens from Vietnam War. Those canteens in mint condition are extremely difficult to locate. I don't know the very reason for it, but you will have more luck if you search online.

One of the best places to find an antique Vietnam War canteen is eBay. To help you find a canteen, we've put together the listings directly from eBay and reorganized them here on our website. Use the listings below to find an antique Vietnam War canteen.

Price Suggestions

Maybe because the war was only 30-40 years ago, the canteens from the Vietnam War are being sold at low prices. I think the average price around $20 based on the previously completed auctions. That doesn't mean that all of them are cheap. There are numerous auctions listings for over $90 per item. For example, just a few days ago a canteen was sold for $22.00 with only 3 bids. Here is the description of the canteen :

Up for auction is some original U.S. military issued early Vietnam war canteens, cover, & cup. First is a U.S Mirro 1962 marked aluminum canteen, with plastic cap and metal chain. The cap is dated 1962 and still has the cork. It looks like it was hardly used, almost new and unissued. A couple of scuffs in the front and no dents.Next is a U.S. 1963 NP marked plastic green canteen. It is scratched and scuffed, looks like it saw a lot of use somewhere, but no holes or cracks. Next is a U.S Westbend 1962 marked canteen cup. has some scratches and a little surface rust on the handle, but otherwise looks unissued. No dents. Markings are on the handle. Last is a U.S marked olive green canteen cover with working snaps and synthetic fur lining. It is marked on the back: Cover, Water, Canteen, M-1956 DSA 1-1143-63-E FSN 8465-577-4926. (the 63 in the dsa number is the date).It is in excellent condition with no rips or tears and it is not faded, it looks unissued. There are a couple stains in the front. There are 2 alice clips in the back.

Other canteens were sold around $20 - $50 range. There was one auction which was ended at $1.99 for the same canteen that was sold for $18 in other auction. When I looked at it carefully, the one with $1.99 final price was listed in wrong category. When you search for an antique canteen on eBay, try to search other categories as well. You might save money if you happen to find the ones in wrong categories.

American Civil War Canteens

The American Civil War canteens are rare items and very hard to find the ones in mint condition. Those are also pricey compared to both WWI canteens and WWII canteens. Some of them were sold for over 300 US dollars at eBay. Not every canteen is that expensive, but they are being sold a lot more if they are extremely rare items. Use the auction listings below to find your treasure. Watch out for reproduction canteens and replicas. Read the descriptions carefully before you place a bid.

Price Suggestions
In the previous completed auctions, there was an canteen auction which was closed at $2,200. It was actually a Civil War Confederate cedar wood drum canteen. It's probably not what you are looking for, but it is a great example of how valuable the Civil war antiques are. Let's take a look at the description of this wood drum canteen.

Classic Civil War Confederate Cedar Wood Drum Canteen Bearing the Hand-Carved Legend "J. K. Pierce/ his/ canteen" on the Face and the Initials "L. B." on the Back. Unquestionably authentic and of the period. Pierce served in Company "E" of the 13th Texas Infantry. His records show that his enlistment began in the fall of 1861 and he served through the entire war. The 13th Texas remained in the state for the majority of the war, with a brief period of service in Louisiana in 1863. The canteen is in excellent tight untouched condition, retaining the three original strap loops and iron bands, which are which exhibit deep dark patina, there is no spout. The carving shows considerable honest wear and interestingly the N in canteen is reversed. A nice Confederate canteen with super ID.

Another type of Civil War canteens being sold on eBay is dug canteens from the war fields. These canteens are usually in pretty bad condition, but they are being sold for high dollars. For example, just recently, there was an auction finished for a Civil War canteen which was run by wagon wheel. It was sold for $172.53 with 10 bids. It's amazing to see what you can find on these auctions.

All other Civil War canteens are being sold at around $50 - $150 depends on the quality of the canteens. So don't pay too much or if it's too cheap, read the description again to understand what you are acutually buying.

World War II Canteens

World War II canteens are rare items, but they are more common compared to WWI canteens. That doesn't mean that WWII canteens are less desirable. Because of more variety in the selection, WWII canteens are very popular among the collectors. Thus the prices vary greatly.

To help you save money and time, we've put together the WWII canteen auction listings directly from eBay on this page. Use the following listings to find your treasure.

Auction Listings

Price Suggestions
If we look at the previously completed auction listings from eBay, we know that the Japanese WWII canteens are sold for top dollars. Let's look at the description of a Japanese canteen listing which was sold at $74.01 with 8 bids.

This is an Imperial Japanese Navy canteen with Japanese characters ID'ing it to a sailor by the name of HORIE. This is a variant used early in the war and was used by both Naval personnel as well as soldiers in the Japanese Special Naval Landing Force. As to which branch Mr. HORIE fought under, I do not know. The condition of the canteen is overall very good condition. The cover is quite solid as is the strap and cap. The metal tie string eyelets are corroding and a part of one eyelet (1 of 12) is missing. Also, the shoulder strap clip has some rust. Aside from a few stains on the cover, the canteen is in good shape and in nice, solid condition overall.

And the other ones were ended around $40-60 range.

The next popular WWII canteens are the US Army canteens. They are slightly cheaper than the Japanese canteens because of the ample supply. They are priced around $10 - $30 depends on the condition. The German Army canteens are also popular.

Price Suggestions
Let's take a look at some of the previous auctions to see how much people are willing to pay for the items. This is to help you from over-spending your money for antique canteens.

Recently at eBay, WWI US Army canteen was sold at $60 with 23 bids. Here is the auction description for that item.

Up for bid is a nice WW1 canteen, cup , and cover. Cover is nicely unit marked as you can see in the pics. Also under the left hand flap it is maker marked POWERS 3-18. Canteen is in nice shape with only a couple of small dings. It is marked US 1918 TJWBM Co. Also included is the cup which is marked US-1918-BA CO. The cup has been ID'd at one time with initials JEB. Also on the back of the cover there is the word Deutsel. Not sure if this is a name or what.

And on the same date, another US Army canteen was sold at $19.99 with 1 bid. Let's look at the description.

Here's another great vintage WWI canteen with its cover. Notice U.S. on canteen cover with crossed rifle's. 16th infantry. Inside cover is stamped Galvin 1917. Canteen is in excellent condition except for a few dents. Cap is connected with original chain. Markings on the back of canteen say U.S. A GM co 1918. Snaps and studs on cover are corrded but look ok, one of the snaps has torn away from the cover, should be repairable. This is very cool, and remarkably in good condition for being 90 years old.

So what made the price difference between these two items when they are almost identical? I think it has to do with where the auctions were posted. The one with $60 price was listed in Collectibles > Militaria > WW I (1914-18) > Original Period Items > United States > Personal, Field Gear while the other one was posted in Collectibles > Militaria > Militaria (Date Unknown) > Army.

When you search for a WWI canteen, try to search other categories as well. You might be able to save a ton of money by searching in many places. If you are a seller, consider listing your antique canteens under a correct category. That will attract more visitors to your canteen auction listings.

    I have a canteen with cover that is stamped on the outside with what looks like “64030″ or maybe “G4030″ on one side and “U.S.” on the other. On the inside flap it is clearly stamped “PROGRESSIVE DEC. 1917″. The canteen is stamped “U.S. L.F.&C. 1918″.

    Can you tell me anything more about this canteen? Thanks much!
