Here is a Civil War relic of the Model 1858 'Bullseye' pattern tin canteen. Often referred to as a Philadelphia Depot-style 'corrugated' canteen, these were issued to all Union troops in the field from July 1862 until the war's end. This canteen is a dug relic, and so exhibits heavy rust throughout and is flattened. Some small holes and cracks are present.  Artifact retains all three of the iron sling bands, but it is missing the spout. Canteen measures approx. 8” in circumference.

Fluid capacity of the canteen was three pints and its liquid contents were kept cool by means of a damp or wet wool cover. Canteen consists of two circular sections of pressed-tin, formed in an oblate spheroid pattern and soldered together at the rim. The Philadelphia Depot produced over 1,500,000 such 'corrugated' canteens for the Federal US Army.

For the collector seeking an original Civil War artifact, this canteen accoutrement would make an ideal addition to any grouping.
