HJ and SS Black canteen covers

I have a question - whether there were black covers for canteens for HJ and SS?

J. Angolia, in his book "Hitler Youth", wrote that the early HJ canteen covers were black.
Is there some sort of documentary evidence of this? Is it possible that this is a mistake of the author?
Unfortunately, much information I could not find.


And one more question, on SS covers. I know, that usually SS covers was the same as that of the Wehrmacht canteens, but recently I saw an interesting catalog, "Junger Jager & Co" manufacturer:


In addition to the standard WH and SA covers, the manufacturer offers delivery and black covers for SS:


Can anyone have information about this? Maybe, is it only the "unrealized idea"?
Best regards, Michael
