Pattern 1858 "smooth side" Federal army canteen, complete with original strap/sling, chain, cover, and stopper. The pewter spout is unmarked, and the strap likewise appears to be unmarked. Cloth cover appears to be a coarse wool-cotton jean cloth, originally grey in color, now a dark grey to grayish-brown. One side of the cover is fairly worn, with thin spots, missing wool, etc. Cover is stained and abraded on both sides, as shown in images.
The strap is cotton, machine-sewn up both sides. The strap has darkened to a grey color and shows various stains and rust spots, abrasions, etc. But is still strong and can support the canteen. An overall nice, honest Federal canteen. 100% guaranteed to be original in all respects.The item "Federal canteen, original / American Civi War" is in sale since Tuesday, September 17, 2019.
