CONFEDERATE TIN DRUM CANTEEN

$450.00 ON HOLD

Quantity Available: 1

Item Code: 1032-65

Confederate style tin drum canteen.  This example measures 6 and 3/4 by 2 and 3/4 (includes the raised surface).  Tin sling loops are located at the 3 o’clock, 6 o’clock and 9 o’clock positions.  The seams are sealed with heavy solder; there is a 1 and 1/4 inch perforation below the spout.  The rolled lip spout is firmly positioned; there is no stopper present.  One surface has the raised inner ring; this example has a 2-inch indentation at the inner ring.  A wide variety of this canteen is seen across Civil War private and public collections.  The larger version was known as the “Tennessee style.”  Comparison canteens are highlighted on pages 88-89 of Sylvia and O’Donnell’s “Civil War Canteens.” With those exceptions stated above and some minor surface scratches, this is an excellent and highly desirable example.  [jc]
