Original 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.

Canteen body has a small dent near the center on one side. Brown wool cover is in fine condition with only very little wear. Pewter spout and strap brackets are intact. Spout has Philadelphia maker’s stamp (HADDEN, PORTER & BOOTH, PHILA).

Cork and chain are of the Indian War type. There is only a remnant of the original sling with herring bone pattern weave. A short piece of cord is tied to the sling and is likely the original cord that would have been tied to the cork stopper ring. A very nice, displayable canteen.  [jet] [ph:L]
