MODEL 1858 CIVIL WAR CANTEEN:   This standard Civil War issue M1858 Canteen retains the brown wool cover over the smooth sided, full form body, all three sling keepers are intact and the stopper is present and complete.  The cover shows use and wear, with a wear through spot approximately 1 square on one side and a larger area on the opposite side on the lower left arc of the canteen.  Otherwise the cover is complete and fairly clean with the herringbone pattern of the material plainly visible.  The unmarked neck of spout is off set and this appears to have been done intentionally by the soldier to move the spout away from his body.  The spout is still intact where it is mounted on the body and is not at all loose.  The canteen body is solid with no open seams or weak points due to rust.  Overall while this Civil War Canteen has seen use in the hands of a soldier, it remains a respectable complete specimen with a decent cover.   (0110)  $350
