MODEL 1890 SPANISH AMERICAN WAR ERA ROUND MEAT CAN OR MESS KIT:  Introduced to replace the Model 1874 Meat Can, this round Model 1890 Meat Can was introduced immediately before the Spanish American War and provided the soldier with a larger frying pan and plate, thought to be more utilitarian.   

This solid specimen shows no corrosion, no misshaping, only minor handling dents, has a fully functional locking handle, and still retains much of the original tin plating.  Not all of these meat cans were surcharged with the “US” stamp on the handle, as were the Model 1874 Meat Cans, and this example does not have that stamping.    

Overall this is a very nice specimen.  (0226) $150
