The model 1858 canteen was the most popular canteen of the Civil War period. Canteen measures approximately 7 ¾” in diameter. It is covered in brown wool. The cover is nearly complete and in decent condition with some staining and wear. There is a 5” separation along the seam at the bottom. All three sling loops, the spout, and stopper are all present. The spout is not maker marked but has initials “E T” carved on it. This is a New York Depot canteen and it once had an iron chain connecting the stopper ring to one of the side strap brackets. The chain is gone but there is a hole in one of the side brackets where is once was attached.  A complete and original cotton shoulder strap remains on the canteen.  It is well-worn and tattered but complete and original!

This is a solid example of a Civil War smooth-side canteen.  [jet]
