Item #1595 This offering is for the pictured vintage US Military Model 1878 Canteen. In nice looking condition, tin body with sound canvas cover and cork stopper. These is no carry strap on this one. 

Faint unit markings present.

Historical note: Our understanding is that after the Civil Was the army had great stocks of the Model 1858 Canteen and these were likely modified (untill stocks were exhausted) to form the Model 1878 with removal of the base loop, addition of the triangle iron hangers, replacement of the canvas strap with leather and a new canvas over petersham.


 Makes a fine display for the military collector.
 
 Just this 1 available.
