This non-excavated Model 1858 US "bullseye" pattern tin canteen is in very good condition. Often referred to as a Philadelphia Depot-style corrugated canteen, these were issued to Union troops in the field until the war’s end. Its five ring body is in overall very good solid condition with only a minor dent on one side. There are no holes or cracks. Its un-marked pewter spout is in excellent condition and has a well-worn over-the-edge lip. The fact that the spout is un-marked, indicates an early contract, before the government required the manufacturers to stamp them with their company name. The iron stopper measures approximately 2-1/2 inches overall and its cork is approximately 1-1/4 inch. Its chain was likely a later addition. All three strap attachment loops are present and in place. There are no repairs. This canteen will make an excellent addition to any Civil War campsite or general relic collection.
