Click on an image to enlarge

This is a really cool artifact! It is an original Confederate soldier's canteen. This is the style that is made of wood and referred to by collectors as the "Wood Drum" canteen. This one is finely crafted out of cedar wood as you can see. It measures 7-1/2 inches across and is 2-1/2 inches thick. It is the version that is held together by 2 thick iron bands that have a gorgeous untouched look all the way around. This one has all of the original three strap loops intact. On the sides of the canteen, it still retains the original linen shoulder sling. These are almost always missing but this one has a great look that you can tell was used by the Rebel. The original wooden spout has been lost to the ages and replaced with a piece of cork. These are usually missing because when the wood dries out from not being used and then it falls out. On one of the sides, it has the scratches the soldier put into the wood. In the collection notes, it stated that this canteen came out of Cashtown, Pennsylvania which is outside of Gettysburg, Pennsylvania. This one has a very cool look all over and will make a fantastic addition to any collection.
