Officially in use until replaced by the blanket roll around 1904, records show these remained in service and were still being issued during the 1917 mobilization.  Marines also used this bag until 1917, and photos show them wearing this bag en route to Vera Cruz in 1917. 

We have a few bags without the US stamp if you want to apply your own marking.  Just mention in Order Comments that you want no US marking.
