Civil War Smooth Sided Canteen SOLD
This is a nice example of the smooth side canteen. It comes with the cover, strap and the stopper. The stopper is retained by a string. This and the strap being hand sewn point to an early war example. The grey jean cover was used on a large number of Union canteens. This example has some wear to the cover suggesting use. Still it is a nice example of a piece of equipment near and dear to every soldier. This is a consignment piece.
