MODEL 1874 MESS CUP – “NGP” NATIONAL GUARD PENNSYLVANIA MARKED:  An excellent specimen of the Model 1874 Mess Cup, and rather than the normally encountered “US” on the handle, there is a plain, legible “NGP” for National Guard of Pennsylvania. It is worth noting that apparently the soldier grabbed the “C” stamp rather than the “G” in this case, however this discrepancy only serves to make this cup that much more interesting.  There are no severe dents or misshaping, no pin holes and all of the seams are intact. There is some surface pitting, but the cup is smooth, quite of bit of the original tin plating still remains, and the integrity of the metal has not been compromised.  Overall, this is a very nice cup to display with your haversack and canteen or on your saddle.  (0307) $125
