The body consists of two circular sections of pressed-tin, formed in an oblate spheroid pattern and soldered together at the rim. Fluid capacity of the canteen was three pints and its liquid contents were kept cool by means of a damp or wet wool cover.

Item is of the New York Depot style and retains its original brown wool cover that is in good condition despite moderate to heavy surface dirt and scattered fraying on one side. Edge seam on the cover is tight.

Canteen has a full but worn cloth sling with a knot tied at the top where the sling has torn.  There is no stopper or chain. All three sling keepers are present. Pewter spout is unmarked.

Canteen body is in good condition but does have several small shallow dents.  [ad][ph:L]
