NEW YORK DEPOT SMOOTHSIDE CANTEEN MADE BY J. C. JOHNSON & CO UNDER CONTRACT OF FEBRUARY 5, 1865 – SLING INSPECTOR MARKED

$295.00 SOLD

Quantity Available: None

Item Code: 1205-04

The canteen is complete with the sling and cork stopper and a partial cover.

One side of the body has a shallow dent at center while the opposite side is good. All three sling keepers are present.

The pewter spout has a rolled lip that is marked “J. C. JOHNSON & CO. FEB 5, ‘65” in two lines. Stopper, ring and chain are original.

About 60% of the usual shoddy cotton cover remains. It has frayed badly over the years and material is missing. The exposure has caused a rust spot a bit bigger than a quarter to form on one side of the canteen body.

Sling is the original with a knot tied between the bottom and side keeper. Sling is dirty but an inspector’s mark can be seen. Reading it is difficult but “T. P. BAYLES U.S. INSPECTOR” in two lines is visible. The last line reads either “N.Y.” or “NEW YORK.”   [ad] [ph:L]
