• Civil War Smooth Sided Canteen


    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.
