    Hi there
    My son just found this Meta Camping pot at the bottom of Kal Lake in Vernon BC. While it’s obviously not old, it would be fun to know more about this model as there is very little about them online. It’s really beaten up but you can still see what it was.

    Was he diving, or did he hook it?
    If the latter, what did he use for bait?

    Hi there @Mike R. , welcome.

    re your: "While it’s obviously not old,..."
    you say this due to it's pristine condition? ... or do you care to elaborate on approx. age?

    Anyone/anything older than me is old (hint i remember where i was when JFK was shot).
    Oh it's older than that right? note the D.R.G.M. .
    As for items we research on this site .. eh, I suppose you're right it's not "old", relatively speaking.

    again re "...it’s obviously not old,..."
    It is a META N.120 and It's new to me ! I can't recall ever seeing a N.120.
    What are the approx. dims height & diameter?

    re "... it would be fun to know more about this model... "
    ditto . thx again.

    Guessing by other Meta numbers - 120 should be at least 1½ liter(or qt):-k:-k:-k
