MODEL 1858 CIVIL WAR “BULLSEYE” CANTEEN:  This Civil War issue Model 1858 Canteen features the “bullseye” or ribbed sided design.  The body is full form with no dents, deformities or holes and overall the tin has a nice aged patina.  The unmarked spout is solid, still fully intact where it is mounted on the body of the canteen, and is not at all loose – and, it still retains the original cork stopper in the throat.  The two upper sling keepers are present and intact, while the lower keeper is missing, and may well have been removed intentionally as there is no damage where it was attached.  The canteen body is solid with no open seams or weak points due to rust. 

This is a nice example of a Civil War “Bullseye” Canteen that has survived in very respectable condition.  (0227) $295
