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 a gray/brown wool. The cover is complete but has several rust stains and wear spots; one larger thread-bare spot is 1.5” x 0.75”.  The stitched seam is unbroken. Remnants of black stenciling is visible on one side.

The three sling loops and spout are all present. Stopper with ring and chain. The spout has no maker’s mark. This is a New York Depot canteen and it still has an iron chain connecting the stopper to one of the side strap brackets. The chain is complete.

A heavy cotton shoulder strap remains on the canteen.  It has been cut and knotted.

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