This is a Civil War-era tin drum canteen in very good condition. Tin spout and all three strap brackets are present. Measures 6” in diameter x 1 3/4” wide. The body is solid with usual dings, dents, and scratches from age and use. Canteen has some very small areas of surface rust along the outside soldered edges. There are remains of a name and other writing lightly scratched into the tin on one side. The better part of a last name, the word “Canteen”, and many other letters can be observed. Unfortunately, the scattered fragments seem unreadable among the other scratches and “rubs”. Perhaps this piece could be identified if the buyer has sharp eyes and patience. You will find yourself staring at this piece for many hours in the attempt to “connect the dots”.   [jet]
