M-1908 Haversack

In 1908, the M1904 haversack was reevaluated and the design slightly changed. The haversack, now designated as the M1908 was slightly smaller than the M1904. Also the two wire hooks on the back were replaced by two spring hooks. This haversack was the standard issue haversack for soldiers of the United States military prior to the introduction of the M1910 Haversack. The haversack allowed the soldier to carry his rations, mess gear, and small personal items.

This haversack, manufactured by the Rock Island Arsenal, year number is fade, unreadable.
