Click on an image to enlarge
Here is a tough to find version of Civil War soldier's canteen. This is the pattern that is illustrated and described on page 202 of the Mike O'Donnell book, U.S. Army & Militia Canteens, 1775-1910. He tells how that it is believed that these distinctive constructed canteens are believed to have been made in Indianapolis, possibly by Jacob Voegtle. The body of these canteens are made by struck tin that have the distinctive rims that fit together perfectly. This one has all three of the tin loops for using a shoulder sling. They also have the interesting this pewter spout that joins directly onto the elliptical tin collar. It has a nice used but not abused look as you can see. This is a scarce version that is in attractive condition.
