Congrats on another cool recovery.
Need to ask, was it above or below from where you found the banner recovery?
Train of thought this is a WWII Canteen, the other was civil war era.
I'd head in that direction sir.

Nice canteen, I remember back when I was a little kid they had them for sale at the militery surplus stores for a few dollars, wish I had bought more stuff from those places when they still existed.
