Click on an image to enlarge

This is a really cool artifact for the price! 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 wood as you can see. It measures 7-1/4ths inches across and is 2-1/4th 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 three strap loops intact and this is the version with the loops that are made out of tin. The original wooden spout has been lost to the ages. These are usually missing because when the wood dries out from not being used and then it falls out. You can tell that when it dried out, the sides turned inward. It is priced accordingly. On one of the sides, it has the soldier put his name into the wood by carving "FRED" in large letters. This one has a very cool look all over and will make a fantastic addition to any collection.
