Description:This is a smooth sided model 1858 canteen that is probably left over from the war and found in someone's leftover wartime belongings. It looks like what is often termed a 'barn find'. It is in pretty good shape and doesn't appear to have any leaks. There are a few ripples on the faces as a result of use. The spout is pewter. Originally it had a cloth cover on it. It still has a part of a leather strap still around the edge with the shoulder loop missing. All in all a very nice canteen for the money.
