RELIC MODEL 1858 BULLSEYE CANTEEN

$95.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: M26400

Excavated Civil War Model 1858 corrugated-pattern tin canteen, often called the “Bullseye” pattern. The body consists of two circular sections of pressed-tin soldered together at the rim. The bullseye or corrugated pattern of concentric rings began in 1861 as an effort to increase the durability of the item. Fluid capacity of the canteen was three pints and its liquid contents were kept cool by means of a damp or wet wool cover.

All three metal strap brackets are present as is the pewter spout. Maker’s stamp on spout, “R. H. GRATZ & CO.  PHILADELPHIA”.  Tin is rusted and has been coated and well preserved. Two small pieces of leather strap remain wedged in brackets.

A dug “Bullseye” canteen in very good condition.  [jet]
