I found this in a local shop today. I'm pretty sure I've seen one similar in Arisakadog's collection, so I bought it.

Nice find, they do not show up often.

Speaking of Adogs,
where is he? Vacation?

Hello albacore:
Yes you lucked out, that is a calvary pouch oiler bottle, they can be either metal or bakelite. I am not sure if the very earliest may have been brass, most are steel and late ones plastic, but then again the repros are plastic also.

Hello Don :
Rest assured that Adogs checked out and took the elevator down to Memphis. :))
This is finally fun being able to answer questions and shoot the breeze, thanks for your help.

Thanks for the quick replies. i picked it up for $5. The guy also had a nice Howa Jyuko bayonet for $80 that was tempting.

Yeah, I'm pretty sure it will end up for sale eventually considering my school books just cost me $330. That's all used and all paperback as well. What a rip off.
