** VERY SCARCE
UNUSUAL CIVIL WAR ERA
Ca 1860's TIN CANTEEN
This offering is for an
original circa 1860's tin canteen. The canteen features an oval shape with two strap
or rope loops on each side. The oval design is quite similar to several canteen styles,
many of which were filter canteens, used by both Union and Confederate soldiers
during the civil war. The top of the canteen is fitted with an early style threaded mouth
and cap, both are non magnetic and appear to be a made of zinc. The canteen
measures app. 8" in height to the top of the capped mouth and the oval shape
measures app. 4½" by 6½" not including the rope loops on each side. There is one
spot where it looks like a small solder repair was made, otherwise the condition is
outstanding with no cracks, splits, dents or repairs. There is a bit of very minor light
surface rust that we have not attempted to clean and we will leave any decision to do
so or not to the new owner. Included is the original rope hanger that appears to be
original. The rope itself has considerable fraying, wear and some losses. This great
old Civil War era canteen will make an excellent addition to someone's collection,
shouldn't it be yours!!! If any further assistance is needed click the following link AmericasPride@charter.net and write
