Rare U.S. Military Issue 1993 Artic Stainless Steel Canteen Cup Made In The U.S.A. Very Rare Artic Canteen Cup.
( JUST SO THERE IS NO MISS UNDERSTANDING THIS IS FOR THE CANTEEN CUP ONLY )
I also read they only made 15,000 of these cups so yes I would say they are rare!
This item came along very late, in 1988. It was a complete replacement for the old canvas cover and included and new canteen and cup. I have recently found some newly published Army doccumentation for this system. It describes some major issues atempting to fabricate the canteen (see below). Personally I love these canteens! They are high grade steel canteens, but they are not overly heavy. They are tough as nails and are extremely easy to take down for cleaning. The mouth is very wide and the entire cap part comes off. The system consists of the Canteen body 8465-01-314-4284, Cup 8465-01-314-4282, Pouch 8465-01-314-4286, and NBC cap and adapter 8465-01-364-7080. Interestingly the NBC adapter was not standardized until 1992. So there must have been a cap that went directly on the Canteen.
Artic Canteen Cup, Cold Weather, CRS 8465-01-313-44282
THIS CUP WAS ONLY USED BETWEEN 1990 & 2001 FROM WHAT I HAVE READ ABOUT. IF YOUR A COLLECTOR THEN THIS IS FOR YOU!
