Here is the same flask from my collection. Seems they were all made identical.
Unless damaged, most of these military flasks you encounter today are still in working order. Which attests to the simple, robust build quality. In fact, I've used mine at the range to load pistols.
When I first obtained it, it was missing the fill plug on the back end. So, for a plug, I located an original top screw from an India pattern Brown Bess lock that had the bottom part of the threads broken off. I had new threads cut on the shortened screw to match the threads of the flask, and it was complete again and ready for use. The patina of the screw was a close match to the flask.
