STATE OF MASSACHUSETTS HAVERSACK

$550.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 1109-04

This white canvas haversack comes with its original liner or “rice bag” that buttons in place and can be removed for cleaning. The bag and cover are one piece, and the cover fastens with two bone buttons sewn to the face of the bag that engage two button holes at the lower corners of the squared off cover flap. The shoulder strap is white canvas as well, showing a blue line of border stitching, and is sewn in place at the rear upper corners of the bag and would have to be adjusted for length by knotting it.

The rear of the bag has an original stencil reading “6 / B /62” in three lines, indicating issue to the 62nd man of Company B of the 6th Regiment. The liner has a similar small “2,” which may be the remnant of a “62” or indicate it was swapped out in cleaning or inspection as some point. The inside of the cover flap is stamped, “STATE OF MASS. / INSPECTED / ACCEPTED.” We are not aware of any firm dating for these haversacks, but the marking clearly shows it is a Massachusetts state contracted piece of gear.

This is in very good condition, solid, with no holes and just minor stains.  [sr]
